that will be interested in my ramblings about my chickens, lol. My five Buffs are quite wonderful jf, they are the sweetest things. I considered what you said cowgirlj, and decided against the wyandottes. I called Mr. Swint today and asked him if he ever carried the speckled sussex. That wonderful man has only had me as a regular customer for a couple of months now, and you know what he did? He said he would see what he could do to get some. I told him I only wanted 5, female, and he said okay, he would get back to me later today. Later today, sure enough, we spoke and he is going to order 25, thats the least amount you can get, he gets them from somewhere in Texas. He said he will call me and let me know when they are coming in, and then call me again when they are in, first thing. They won't be available until March 25th, but thats okay, I can wait. Gives the Buffs more of my time, and them more time inside until then. :) He ordered 25, just so I could get my 5, and he said he would be able to sell the rest, so it would be fine. You just can't find service like that anymore, I love that old feed store, been around forever. Get my dog and cat food there too. He is the nicest man. Glad to see some things are still around like feed and garden supply stores. :)

LOL, Kelly. Don't froget those litty bitty chicks grow up into big chickens and they need enough space so they don't pick at each other. I was thinking about you today and I found a couple of pictures of Friendly. Problem is, they're in a word document and I can't post it here -wrong file type. If you ping me I'll send it to ya'

had a buff hen hatch out 5 baby's unfortunately something got em and the rest of the eggs. Now I have made a homemade incubator and trying that route. If that does not work then I will purchase a liitle giant still air incubator at the local Southern States-35 dollars. I have plenty of fertilzed eggs and 4 year old and a 1 year old girls that just love em keep us posted and good luck

Thanks, your braver than me! I would start from eggs, and it would be a neat thing to see, but I am not that confident, so I buy them from Mr. Swint, plus, I don't want any roosters. :) Shelby is just revelling in having chickens. I told her, hey, how many kids at your school get to come home and play with chickens??? lol

Sorry you lost your babies. Hope this next time will be successful for you.
