    Ok, the new chicks I got this spring. 5 Cuckoo Marans, 3 Sumatras, and 3 EE's (they were so cute, with their little cheek tufts, or whatever you call them, I could not resist) I snuck in the 3 ee's, the sumatras, and one cuckoo maran. My dh thought I only had 4 cuckoo marans. Then went in the shed to find the others. He said, I think your chicks had babies. LOL

    And I have a broody sitting on 16 mixed eggs. 6 of them thanks to jab91864. They are due on the 16th. I'm so excited.

    I started with 5 Bantam chicks, 4 of which died:( But then we got 2 Pekin Ducks. Yesterday I got 2 more ducks (A crested and what looks like a runner), 2 pair of BB Red Bantams, and 3 Black Hens. Can't remember what breed:( They sure are pretty though:) The black hens had 1 med. size white egg in their pen this afternoon already and that is in my new incubator and 24 eggs on on their way in the mail of various rare breeds. LOL I went from having 1 Bantam Silkie to a dozen chickens in about an hour at the swap yesterday. Yikes!
