    To buy more chicks!!!! So I kinda know what I want and how many and I have been window shopping now I am trying to stop myself from hitting that "add to shopping cart" button for a couple more months [​IMG] If any of you are in the U.P. of MI when is the best time to order? I have plenty of room in the basement so brooding them is not a problem but I would like to have them out in the "chickie" coop by the time they are a month old. I was thinkin Late Feb to mid March, does this sound about right?

    I got my chicks in late February, I live in Missouri. I kept them, 11 of them, inside for about 8 weeks because it was just to cold to try and keep them outside. I could have gotten them later, but this way we got eggs much earlier. [​IMG]
