My first new chicks were just two weeks old on Tuesday. I have evolved into "chicken mama" has my hubby as began calling me. And now, what traces of sanity I still retained, were spent ordering even MORE CHICKS! Only 7 though. But "exotic" breeds. I am SO excited and can't wait for their arrival (not til the week of 8/20) from Ideal. I wonder though, since these chicks will only be about one month apart in age from the 27 I already have, if they will be easier to integrate into the flock than if I had waited until common sense returned before ordering?
