    Because of some timing issues, I want to wait until the end of June to get my new chicks. I live in Arkansas if that means anything and I am getting 3 standard breed hens.

    I just need to know if it's okay to get day old chicks that late in the year or if you really need to do it in spring.

    Thank you![​IMG]

    In my opinion, I think it doesn't matter when you get them as long as you have a place to keep them warm.
