    Ordered 25, 23 for me and two for another BYC'er. Two were DOA, so that left me with 21. Three of those turned out to be roos that I didn't order - I ordered two. Re-homed the three extras, so then I was down to 18, two roos and 16 hens. Gave one roo and 2 hens to a friend of mine who had lost her flock to predators. So...now I have 15, one roo and 14 hens.

    I have seven (7) spoiled rotten lady birds.
    I'm about to attempt to hatch some chicks which will give me time ....er my husband time to build a new coop for them! And this time I'm going to keep a rooster! Ask me again in about a year. [​IMG]
