Ok, it has been 28 hours since I have been able to get on the check out BYC and you all gave me something like 10 pages and 99 unread posts. I am never going to be able to keep up with this...
Chicken Grandma - thanks for the advice...Like I said my top three choices would probably be EE, Leghorns, and Deleware. I have never been to TSC Chick Days...do they have different breeds or do you just pick out whatever they have? Do they have them sorted into pullets, straight run, etc?
Raz - I am going to show my chicken ignorance here. You're going to have to slow down w/ those abbreviations. What is BLA and Uggo? What is an egg song? Never heard of Langshan. Are they are brown or white layer?
NovaAman - I am not opposed to starting with larger pullets, but we have 3 kiddos, 5,5, and 18 months...they are expecting chicks...
Bianca - AWESOME PICTURE!!!
Teeville5 & Chickmate - Thanks for the warm welcome :)
Fuzzybuttlove - I guess it is just about finding a balance in your feeder. It will probably be a little trial and error for me to find out what works best. I plan on putting the feeder and water under the poop board under the roosts...haven not exactly figured out how it is all going to work yet. Looking forward to hopefully starting to work on the coop tomorrow if the weather is nice.
Hillbilly Hen - We tried a garden last year too. I think our seeds germinated and then rotted. We just had so much rain last year. Hopefully we will have better luck this year. I think we are going to try some raised beds. Hopefully that will help w/ the drainage issues as well. Where in GA are you from? We moved up here from the Atlanta suburbs a year ago.
Snowflake - I remember you saying something to me, but I am drawing a blank...something about Leghorns being great layers...hoping to get some of them!
Ok, well I have probably forgotten to acknowledge somebody that told me something. You all are so kind and patient w/ me. Hope you have all had a nice weekend. My weekend is just starting :) - 4 days off yippee!
