Ever heard of Chicken Fever?

We had to stop in town over the week-end for some layer crumbles for the chickens and a couple other items. Our favorite haunt is the local TSC. I went right to the section in mind and was looking at a larger feeder and waterer for the chicks I had bought at the auction. They were out-growing their peep-box.

...............when hubby comes up to me and says "Hey, Hon, they have chicks over here....."
(wondering... what do we need more chicks for??) well... because what we got will be at least half roosters (spelled r-o-a-s-t-e-r-s) so, yes... came home with a dozen more chicks. We think these might be Plymouth Barred Rocks. People at the store said some white ones were Cornish X and others were "Rocks". Anyway, we may as well make a day of it when we 'process'. I will keep some hens from these also if there are any.

Of course when they are bigger :) They are not even big enough to make "city chicken" at this point, LOL! Do you remember that dish Mom used to make??
