    Nice mix of sturdy good breeds! Those chickens are so addicting aren't they. If they weren't so darned cute and fun! :D I love watching their personalities come through as they grow.

    Chickens are a lot of fun to watch.
    Which TSC do you patronize? Waycross? It's a little closer for us to go to the new one on I-295 on Jacksonville's north side.
    We have Aricanas and Orpingtons, but the ladies are getting too old to lay so my wife is going to order some more in March. They come to our door, delivered by the post office.

    I go to the one in Waycross, because that is where I live. It's the closest. I like to buy local if I can, but sometimes you gotta go to the chain stores. I love to watch my chickens, young and old. I got the ones from TSC to eat out of my hand today, now they run to me when I put my hand in there!!!! it is so adorable!!!!!
