    Every summer I stop by the farm that's a county away from my farm, they sell their extra baby chicks in the front of their farm on the side for road early in thew morning, I always stop at the end of their selling and buy a box full of chicks they sell them off for a quarter a piece. This year though I was swapped with quail so I spent $2 got 8 chicks. I didn't look for any specific birds just picked out the cutie pies [​IMG] any way. All 8 chicks grew up and miraculously I picked out 8 purebred hens (the farmers told me the box had a few purebreds but mostly mutts) I got...
    1.) Sicilian Buttercup
    2.) Solid Black Standard Cochin (she's going to be showed)
    3.) Partridge Standard Cochin
    4.) Silver Polish
    5.) Ancona
    6.) Buff laced Polish
    7.) My Bantam Easter Egger (She's my baby girl)
    8.)Araucana

    All of these a quarter a piece. Lol can you believe my luck [​IMG]
