Hi friends! I am so excited I feel like a expectant mother!! I got my babies ordered yesterday!! SADLY my order is so small (5) I have a hatch date of April 11th. For the birds safety I have to wait. I only PRAYERS they all arrive healthy and Alive!! I'm embarking on a NEW adventure with these little ones as I've ONLY raised and have silkies. This time around I ordered 5 Barred Rock females. ( MY hubby's favorite breed).If anyone of you have barred rocks what are their personality like? are they friendly? gentle? calm? Silkies are so loving and gentle I hope these are too!!I just wanted to share with ya'all about my up coming babies! I even counted back and marked on the calendar when the eggs will be set into the incubator! it's my FIRST time ordering from Murray Hatchery and I hope all goes smoothly. I opted-in on getting them vaccinated for Mareks. only a dollar each! in the past I've vaccinated my own chicks for Mareks by ordering the vaccine. it sure is a lot cheaper having it done!! Anyhow, thanks for letting me share!! I can't hardly wait!!
