Reading through several threads, I find that I am not the only one considering various breeds to replenish my flock come spring. I know for sure I want some chicks from PipsnPeeps, and she has promised to set a number of eggs for me. And Katy has some of the most beautiful BRL Wyandottes I've ever seen. **Did I get that name right Katy? Whatever you call them, I want some!!! **(I'll have to learn how to use my incubator before that happens though. ) Our local feed store gets a very limited variety of chicks each year, and being hatchery birds, their quality leaves a bit to be desired. But I'm sure a few of the poor little darlings from there will come home with me. When one is faced with a huge water trough filled with about a hundred peeping, chirping little fuzzies, how can one resist? Especially in light of my current severe case of "chick withdrawal" I think I'd like to get a handful of BO chicks. Gimpy Girl was such a sweetheart, and while her sister isn't anywhere near as affectionate as Gimpy was, she's still a nice bird. So, I think I'll just have to put BO's on the list. I'd also like to have a couple of SLW's just for contrast with the LB's and BR's. Hmmm....with the exception of the GSL and BO's, this flock seems to be leaning in the direction of black and white birds! So, what's on your list for this Spring? What are you shooting for? Eggs or meat? Color or companionship? Who do you just have to add to your flock this Spring?? Put up your wish list here!
