This is happening...just placed order for my pullets!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Well, I'm jumping in! I am going to pick up my four lovely little chickens on June 9th! Now, I have to get started on gathering all my materials for the coop/run and all the supplies. Fun, fun, fun! I'm so excited! :thumbsup

Congrats! It is a great endeavor! The spring we built our chicken coop was crazy, good luck!

I just picked up a few chicks to build my tiny flock and it brings back memories of when we started our chicken adventure, gosh, almost seven years ago. (By the way, brace yourself for all the chicken-themed gifts you will accumulate once you assume your identity as a "chicken person".)

 

There's nothing more fun than baby chicks and truly nothing more fun than your FIRST baby chicks. Enjoy and congratulations!

I still get excited every year when I order new chicks no matter how many I already have. It's so nice to have something to look forward to. What kind are you getting?
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

I'm actually getting 17 week old sex-link pullets. I might do chicks down the road. I'm so excited!
