    I can only have a few girls, so I went for variety. I have an SS, BR, and EE. The SS and BR are the sweetest most docile girls. My EE is the leader of the pack and a sqawker! All are very people friendly and pretty breeds.

    Wow, someone with a "seasonal" obsession about chicks. I think I used to be that way until I discovered I could hatch eggs in the winter.

    And while I prefer LF chickens, there's something just so adorable about adding a few bantam breeds into the mix. [​IMG]

    Well, my dad says no more...but my grandma is an enabler!
    I currently have 12 BR (10 bought form Ideal 2 years ago, 2 incubated and hatched!), 6 EEs (sweethearts!) , 1 Bantam Buff Brahma hen, 1 bearded d'anver roo, and 1 silkie! (Thus, I became addicted to bantams!)
    So...two days ago my grandma went over my parent's heads... and bought
    6 Rhode Island Reds and 5 'assorted' bantams! Of course now my dad doesn't mind because he was sucked into the cuteness! [​IMG] And soon, I shall be incubating more quail.
