    My DS is going away to boot camp Monday. And he is the main chicken care-taker. I am the backup person, my daughters unwillingly fill in when necessary.... and we already have about twenty five chickens, of which 9 are roosters. anyway, TSC has chicks. Red Star pullets...I started longing for them....asked my DS to pick up three. Just three. He picked up eight. They are on the way home now. Am I crazy? [​IMG][​IMG]

    I've heard being crazy defined as "doing the same thing over, but expecting different results." You did something DIFFERENT, didn't you??? Can't be crazy![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
