I wanted a small little flock, like maybe 3 or 4 hens and a rooster. In less than 3 weeks we are at 8 pullets/hens, 4 chicks in the brooder, and a young rooster. I knew it would happen. There's just so many breeds and I love having the variety. Here is picture of just the girls tonight. I am seriously done! Someone stop me. I can't count on my husband because he has turned into a chickaholic as well.
