    Enjoy! We started our flock 3 years ago. Having a great time. My 6 y/o was dancing around the table tonight chanting, "my baby chicks are coming next week!"

    wow, such cute chicks!!!!
    we got ours yesterday and they are still little fluffballs
    u will have a lot of fun raising them
     
  8. just wait until chicken math gets to you, you'll start off with your happy flock but then, you have some space, so you get some more chicks, but you HAVE to order 25 so you get another coop, then that coop is a little empty, and the roosters you have to cull MUST be replaced, and the chicks dont count since they dont lay. Just wait till chicken math gets to you, you start off with these little chicks then you have 50

    Oh the chicken math...good luck. I started with 10 chicks which quickly grew into 25 cause I wanted more. Then my grandpa god love him built me a coop for my "special" birds (speckled sussex are my game<3) So that number quickly grew to 50 and then I built another outside coop which gave me room for 50 more.....needless to say I now have over 300 birds and I love them to death..each and every one :). Not to mention I hatch 1000 eggs in 3 incubators from feb-sept every year <3 THE CHICKEN MATH NEVER LIES!
     
  10. COMPLETE PROOF! That chicken math gets to ya, it gets to ya man
