    Here is my Spring 2012 Day Old Chicken order. Check back later, as I haven't decided on all breeds and numbers of them just yet. But I can say I will be ordering just a few breeds this time and only the ones that seemed to have done better last year and made it through the winter just fine. I figure I have room for about 60 more birds anyway.(without having to do any construction) SHORT LIST SO FAR...

    buckeyes, dominiques, wyandottes, sussex. like 12 of each...

    Would like to try Chantecler this year as well! Darn things are straight run....ARGH! > With my luck, I'll get 20 roos!

    Update > Didn't know about possible issues adding new and old flocks together, so might have to change my game plan! to be continued...


    Update > Wife approved, so I have decided to build new coop and run ... saves me tons of issues with mixing two flocks, AND WE CAN GET MORE BIRDS THIS WAY!

    Here is the current/new Spring 2012 Chick order!
