    Haha- So I found myself 3 more baby Buff Orpington Pullets yesterday about 3 weeks old. They already have feathers coming in. When I picked them out of this bunch I was trying to be so careful~ examining them trying not to accidently pick out any more roo's [​IMG] They were all freaking out not wanting my hand to grab them and I felt so bad, Haha tormenting the store guy I'm sure. I waited slowly till they calmed down and would pick one out and go for it and gently pick her up. And mind you I did this all three times! And I even changed my mind on one of them after studying them again in the store to make sure I didn't see any roo characteristics, I thought maybe it could have been one (paranoia kicking in)... Ohhh it couldn't possilbly happen again right? Haha [​IMG] And so I have these 3 cute little additions to the family, and I was a little nervous because they are older that they might be a little afraid of us. So I told the kids to stay back from them and let me spend a few days with them. Well last night I decided to lay on the couch and put a towel down and cuddle with those little chicks. And when I opened the door on the cage low and behond they came jumping out to me!!! [​IMG] Almost as if they wered saying Pick ME Pick ME! Haha So I grabbed all three and I layed on the couch and they nestled up against me and we all fell asleep~ I woke up at 5:30am and they were all still sleeping next to me!! How can it be so easy to fall in love~ [​IMG]

    I just thought I'd share my moment with the newest family members~ cause it was special!!!!
