So I'm w a i t i n g! No eggs yet out of these slackers and I can't stand it. Everytime I hear some clucking going on outside I run out to see who and if I have an egg on the menu today. But nothing, guess I have no choice but to go down the street to the lady that does have chickens laying and buy me some eggs. AAArrrgggg.
Anyway, quick question...Is it too hot to get baby chicks right now? It's hitting low 100's around here, but there is an ad on BYC for Backyard Chicken and they only have a 3 chick minimum. What do you guys think? I really really want a colorful egg basket. Oh boy, I've got the fever don't I and I haven't even started getting eggs yet?
Go buy those egg--then you will get your first egg tomorrow.
If it's too hot, the USPS won't ship live animals. You may find them locally from a breeder. Check your state thread to see if there is a chicken stock or swap close to you.
