    At the local feedstore, we ordered some chicks today. They will arive just before Easter, they're not an Easter Present, but that's EARLY! [​IMG]
    Please, tell me how I did on picking the breeds [​IMG] (These are all suppost to be good layers... I didn't get the ones I already had [​IMG] )
    So, they had a breed list, so my Mom let me pick which ones I wanted.
    (All pullets)
    1) Araucana
    2) SilverLaced Wyandotte
    3) New Hamshire Red
    4) Buff Orpington
    Mom says: What!?!? No silkies!!! I WANT SILKIES!! ( Here's what I wanted to do [​IMG] )
    5) Light Brahama
    Man says: Oh, if you get one more you wont have to pay an extra $4:00
    6) GoldenLaced Wyandotte
    Did I do good? =P

    Sounds pretty good to me! The only one that I wouldn't get for myself is the Brahma. But that is just because I wouldn't want to clean their feet as often as I would have to here... [​IMG]

    I am getting both Silver laced and Golden laced Wyandottes around that time too!

    ETA: I love my Buff Orpingtons! I got 11 awhile back and 7 turned out to be roos so I got rid of most of them, but the ones I kept have never attacked anybody! And my hens come running when they see me!

    I've owned 3 of those breeds Brahmas and Wyandottes are my favorites....They both mature more slowly but my Silver Laced Wyandotte is super sweet and lays an egg everday. So I think you did pretty darn good. Buff Orps are suppose to be super sweet.

    Sounds like a good mix. You will gets lots of nice eggs out of them. Just keep in mind your Araucana is actually going to be an Easter Egger, though.
