    Hello all,

    We recently moved from CA to AZ specifically to have more freedom & land..my boys are teens and sooo looking forward to finally having chickens...and now that I ordered the chicks..which won't be here for 3 weeks..I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO NERVOUS ABOUT ANYTHING IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!![​IMG]

    They are all I can think about. I am not sleeping well, my family is making fun of me..for goodness sakes, I have given birth 4 times, 3 on the Autism spectrum, we homeschool, I have had tons of animals and pets in my life..and I cannot believe how paranoid I am over these babies...please tell me this is normal.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. You had better get your sleep now because when they get there, I can bet you will be getting up in the middle of the night to check on them. [​IMG]
