My husband and I live south of Lawrence, KS. In Lone Star. We've talked and talked about getting chicks, and hemmed and hawed, and thought it was a good idea, and thought it was a bad idea.
I bought four easter eggers in May, from our Orscheln in town. Sadly, we lost one when our dog grabbed her. We added two Rhode island Reds, and a Barred Rock to the flock at that point. The're settling in quite well - and we'll move them outside soon! My husband has built Le Palais des Chickletts... and we're still working on the run.
