    Okay so put my order through yesterday 2/22/14 at 5:30am-
    1- Silver Laced Wyandotte Pullet
    1- Gold Laced Wyandotte Pullet
    1- Buff Orpington Pullet
    1- Black Austrolop Pullet
    1- Speckled Sussex Pullet
    +Paid Extra For Express Mail +Mareks Vaccination For All Chicks


    At 9am (same day) I received the following e-mail:
    Hi Jessica- Thank you for your order that I received today. I did, however, want to let you know that your order won't be able to be filled until May due to the Speckled Sussex being sold out until then. As for the Silver Laced and Golden Laced Wyandottes, they are sold out until the end of March, so even if you'd like to substitute the Speckled Sussex for another breed, then if you keep the Wyandottes it still won't be in February. Please get back with me and let me know what you'd like to do. Thanks.


    I responded @ 3pm (same day):
    the specked sussex you can swap out for another buff orpington pullet that would be fine... i don't want to swap out any of my wyandottes tho


    At 3:14 (same day) received back:
    Ok, sounds good, that's what I'll do. :)


    Then at that exact time i got a updated order email that my chicks will be shipped out 3/10/14 ;)



    (ILL UPDATE AGAIN WHEN I RECEIVE THEM OR GET ANOTHER EMAIL)
    (AND I WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THIS AS THE CHICKS GROW)

    Every order.
    I ordered from McMurray Hatchery last year and was thrilled when they arrived. I ordered again from them this year, and they aren't due until April 7th, but I'm sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting for that day!

    Although I have my goose eggs to keep me company in the meantime, too. Now THAT was some excitement, finding out that one was developing, last night (other two are dirty, so I can't see those yet).

    The pre fab coop will be very small for five LF hens. You will be building a large coop before those chickies lay their first eggs. Give them lots of free ranging in your yard if you can.

    they will be free ranging mostly all day long... we were talking about it right after i saw it built and we think we may buy another of the same coop and make them into one... not right now of course but a little later on.. like in a few months
