Just ordered 15 RIRs female chicks for delivery mid-April! My dear husband said I could not leave chicks with him when I go for an out-of-town visit to grandbabies in early April. I suppose watching 13 hens, 6 equines, cows, diabetic dog and cats are probably enough. Plus, these are really going to be my little ones. Now to figure out a brooder and it's location.
