    Thanks for all the congrats! I love my Buff Orpinton she's my favorite! My Wynadottes are pretty but are aloof. And one can be a bit pecky. She's the boss! My Easter egger is pretty nice too!
    I want to get a few Seramas. Just have to work on the hubby to agree with it. He says we have too many pets. But chickens are different I say. He doesn't agree :(
