    Hi Folks. I was raised on or around farms, but this will be my first solo with poultry. I've been lurking here and yon for several days researching breeds and am grateful for all the great knowledge accumulated here. Just ordered 32 chicks from Meyer for Sept 6 consisting of 5 breeds-Buckeye, Delaware, GL Wyan., Black Giants, and Speckled Sussex. I've been cramming for a week or so, but I'm sure Ill be crying for help 'fore too long. Thanks for a great site!
