I called my local feed store yesterday becuase I was concerned about the volcano. Turns out their personal shipment that they sell in the store dind't make it!! they all died I have a shipment of 25 coming on the 16th and they warned me I might not get them,but they are trying to divert the shipment straight to fairbanks instead of ancorage. If they do however go through ancorage they are goign to keep them for an extra day to make sure they are ok and extend the time frame I have for them to replace them if they get sick. I am just soo sad for all those babies chicks. And really makes me wonder how the volcano is affecting them im guesses it is all the ash in the air on that side of the state. We have been very lucky to wear it hasn't hit us. Kind of bummed I might not get my chicks on the day I thought. Well....I finally got my chicks!!! They all look lively and healthy!!!Feed store said I got lucky cause it was the first shipment that has gone GOOD. YAY!!!! Take a look at my set up and tell me what ya think. I hope I did everything Im pretty sure I did. 10 Buff Orp.. 10 RIR 5 Cornish-slow growing This my set up for about a week then the Ducks and Turkeys will go into bigger area and the chicks will have the whole big set up.
