    My new babies are scheduled to arrive from Ideal this coming Friday!!

    I'm getting 15 chickens (assorted that I picked) and five Guinea keets.

    Oh, this is so hard ...waiting, waiting, waiting.

    I just had to lament to someone and I knew you all would understand. I already have their brooder ready.


    waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting.......

    Mine are due to hatch on Sat. I have one more day than you! Maybe some will be early? No, NO, NO! Oldest DD will be in school Friday, she wouldn't be happy.

    LOL Mine were "supposed" to have a hatch date of April 24 and I still have not received any from the local feed store where the order was placed! It was killing me - but I now have 2 babies to tide me over.
