    Ok, I admit this is my fault [​IMG]. Last year hubby fell prey to chick days, so we went home with 6 chicks that I picked out, I managed to pick 1 roo and 5 hens and keep them all alive first year out.

    So over the weekend chick days got here and I was looking at them, I was considering getting some banty chicks but didn't because I didn't want to mess with babies again right now. Well I told hubby about looking and he said he knew a guy that had some chicks, Orphingtons, buff like the ones we already have, he called, we went and I bought them, all of them. 14 chicks, about 6-7 weeks old, all female.

    So since I picked on hubby for his purchase, I will poke fun at myself as well, lol.

    My impulse buy from the weekend, at least some of them.

    I had no plans for chicks this year, I don't need more chickens, we have plenty with the 6 we have, blah blah. Oops, lol. I guess they are like potato chips, once you have a few you want more, lol.

    I understand completely. I have enough chickens. I have 10 dozen eggs in the refrigerator right now!

    I was in TSC last week during chick days. Before we went in the store I made my daughter swear she would not let me buy any chicks, especially the adorable bantams. It worked!
    Then I went home and ordered hatching eggs to try a new breed. [​IMG]

    I told my son to not let his dad buy any this year. I wasn't worried about me buying because I have willpower. HA!! I guess I should have grounded myself as well.

    I saw one of the young ones taking a dust bath earlier, it is so cute. Although watching the big fatties roll around is amazing, how can they twist like that?

    looks like you got it!

    I will suggest going up to the learning center button and clicking it, as well as read all the FAQ (frequently asked questions) hopefully that will help get you started!
