    I have one 4-H'er who needed chicks for a pen of three project at our upcoming fair so I decided I would order chicks too to save my 4-H kid on shipping plus I want some babies!!! I also offered it up to a few friends so now between 5 of us we have about 60 chicks coming on monday from Mc Murray.

    30 cornish cross for the 4-Her and my own/friends combined meat project
    10 EE's for a friend
    5 Polish for myself and a friend
    10 Marans for fun
    5 Buff Orps for a friend


    I cant wait until they get here!!! I gotta clear out some brooder space from the chicks I have been hatching so there is room for these guys...

    super excited, I just got a call from the main shipping center about an hour from me to let me know they have my chicks and they are open 24 hours so I am on my way down to get them right now!!

    No need to make them wait in their box until monday...
