    OK, so I stopped by the feed store "just to see" what they had. I didn't expect much, since another feed store near me said they weren't going to receive any more chicks until Spring. But I stopped by this place... and they had chicks!

    So I bought 2 Barred Rocks & 3 Americaunas! They look to be about a week or two old. I'm excited! But I can't believe I did it. I told myself I'd be content with the 10 we had. :rolleyes:

    I've got them inside the house in a cardboard box with hay in the bottom. The kids and I love holding them, just as we did the first group of chicks (4 months ago!

    Now to tell my hubby what I've done! LOL

    Funny thing is I don't think the husband would care. We are in 'town' and we have ordinances of how many birds per size of your lot. We are maxed out at 12, most of my neighbors wouldn't care, but of course there is always one that will give you trouble.

    Well, turns out he still loves me! He just smiled when he saw what I did. (The kids showed him before I could *tell* him.)
