    The breeds I was hoping to get in addition to my Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons and Australorps are not available until the 10th to order. So I am trying to be as patient as possible [​IMG] I know it is a virtue I am working on it.

    I am in NH so a few people have told me that I should wait until April to order, but I really would like to get the chicks now. Any opinions?

    The other breeds are Wyandottes, Sussex and SC LB Leghorns.

    I just ordered 10 chicks from Ideal!!!! I *think* they will be shipped on the 21st...I made sure the Available date was the same on everything I ordered. I live near Houston.

    This is my very first order and I am soooooo excited. I've never had chickens before so I've been reading this forum and learned so much in the past few weeks [​IMG]

    Okay you guys, I think my order makes me certifiable.....

    Shipping to us today from Ideal:

    14 RIR Pullets
    6 RIR Roo's
    12 Easter Egger Pullets
    6 EE Roo's
    12 Black Australorp Pullets
    6 BA Roo's
    12 Cornish X broilers

    We are keeping a few of the roo's but our local Chinese restaurant buys the rest, as well as the broilers and some of our meat ducks.

    ETA: I always refer to Easter Eggers as Ameraucana's-because I don't know what the difference is! Aren't they both some sort of cross with the south american araucana? Excuse my ignorance!
