I am so excited but I have to wait till June 17th till they are shipped. That's ok. At least I have plenty of time to get ready for them and the weather will be nicer also or at least I hope so. I decided after all the good I heard about the Black Astralorps I had to have them. And I love the Buff Orpingtons. For some interest I love what I've read and the looks of the Light Brahmas. And the last breed my husband picked this one. Barred Rock. We have 5 pullets of each breed coming. The girls and I are very excited about getting the chicks. They will be out of school when they arrive so I guess I will have some help getting them settled in. Big thank you to everyone who helped me. And just wait to hear all the questions I have now.
