*Bought 4 more chooks on Friday. 2 Lavender Araucanas (to get the greeny-bluey eggs) and 2 more Isa Browns. My original chooks are such bitches that within 2 minutes of their arrival we had 2 of the new girls fly up over the fence and into a tree. Got them back, though.

    But really. I want chickens!!

Don't be shy... say something!
