I need an intervention. I told my husband when I was trying to convince him that we needed chickens that I would get four chicks and only hens. I found a local guy hatching Buff Orpingtons on xmas, and Speckled Sussex on New Years Eve. I committed to four of each. Then today I see on Craigslist Silver Wyandotte chicks for sale. I reserved four of them. I got there and saw another pen full of other babies. I asked what they were and the guy said Easter Eggers. My daughter looked at me and said "GREEN EGGS!!" while putting her hands in a praying position and mouthing "please, please, Please". So I came home with eight baby chicks today. With the other babies that brings my count up to 16. These were not sexed, I could have eight roosters in my brooder for all I know lol.. Thanks to everyone here on BYC I ordered the 8x12 coop instead of the 4x6. Good thing, huh?
