Hello to all in the BackYardChicken Forum!

I just ordered my first chickens from: http://www.mypetchicken.com/default.aspx

Has
anyone else used this company?

These will be the first chickens I've owned since I was a teenager (30+ yrs ago). I was going to wait till I retired, but gosh darn it you can't put life on hold for retirement!

I ordered 6 chicks: Black Giant Jersey, Blue Cochin, Lite Brahma, Easter Egger, Golden Polish, Sussex.  Arriving April 13 or 14! Seems so, so far away sad....

I bought a Coop Kit by Lancaster County that just arrived this week!

My sweet husband has agreed to assemble the coop, build a 3 x 14 foot fully enclosed run, and fence an area of the yard off for free ranging. We are both very excited!

This forum has helped me a lot. Now I have joined my first forum!

My current cridder family consists of an 8yr old male German shepherd (Dasher), a 6yr old male black Standard Poodle (Donner), 2 cats (Jester and Gypsy) and a bunny (named  Millie which is short for "454,000 milligrams" because that equals 1lb and I got her at "the pound").

My dogs have never been with chickens, but they are highly trained, and they will only be near the chicken yard with supervision. They are both sweet to the bunny and cats.

Well that's all I have to say about myself for now smile

Look forward to chatting with you all!

Hi,
I ordered 8 female chicks from MPC last year (wanted 6 but thought 2 might not make it) - I received 8 very healthy chicks who have matured into very healthy laying hens.  Now hubby and I are both hooked so we built a nice roomy new chicken house and plan to place another order with them soon.  Then I really do have to stop - or move to a bigger place!

Almost forgot, the only problem I did have was that the chicks came a week earlier than I was told in the email they sent.  This wasn't a big problem since we were home and the brooder was almost ready - but It would have been if we had been out of town.

Good luck and have fun!
