    i ordered from a hatchery for the first time. MT healthy. I am waiting and seeing they arrive this week. Praying bad weather stays away as they are saying flurires the day i have to go get them. AGHH, but then turn into 50/60 s so they will be warm.

    I don't have any coming this year as yet but I wish I did...

    I want to try Faverolles, Chanteclers, Barnevelders and blue Orpingtons eventually.

    I decided to give Mt Healthy a try this year.I have 15 ,straight run, Buff Orpingtons coming at the end of March.I'm fairly close to them and I've heard good things about them.I only want to end up with 5 hens and a rooster.The rest will be processed and saved for supper or re homed to other chicken keepers.I look forward to having one of these hens hatch out her own chicks in the coop next year.

    Good luck to everyone with new chicks on the way ! What a wonderful time of year and a wonderful hobby to spend some time with !

    I have 12 assorted pullets coming from Ideal Poultry, being shipped 1/16 should receive 1/17. And of course they will probably include males for warmth. So we will see how many actually arrive.
