Ideal just called and asked if I minded if they shipped my chicks sooner, like today! According to their website they had limited availability for today and when I placed my order, I couldn't get them until the 24th. I was quite bummed out to wait that long. I've been medicating myself with working on the new improved coop and run. I must say, it is shaping up! I had 7 chicks originally and one died and five disappeared, so these are replacement chicks. It absolutely broke my heart to lose my girls, they were just past the ugly-teenage stage and were getting beautiful. I stopped by my local crack house (feed store) and they had turkeys. Well, two stops there today and I ended up with a turkey. I was thinking how sad it was going to be with no chick-mates. Now, he is going to have 12! Not only that, my lone survivor was getting pretty lonely too and she was checking out the turkey. I am so excited. I had chosen the Light Brahmas because they looked pretty in pictures, but my gosh, those were some gorgeous chicks I had. I'll be picking up my new girls on Friday. YAY! Oh, and I had originally planned to have 4 chickens total. Now? Um...One Light Brahma rooster, one Australop, 13 Light Brahma hens and an as yet, unsexed bronze turkey. Did I mention my pygmy goats? Just two of those (so far). Hey, it isn't my fault they have minimum orders! I can stop any time... My girlfriend said she is gonna ban me from going to Kilby's Feed & Seed.
