    Ok I have 14 chicks in my brooder box right now that are 2 weeks old...then I had a hatched our 4 in the incubator that are one week old now...added them to the mix and they did fine. NOW I decided to order more because I wanted a D'uccle, some australorps, and some orps. I was going to order eggs but found out that Ideal had these to be delivered THIS week yet! SO I ordered 6 straight run D'uccle's (Hope ONE is a female) then I ordered sexed pullet Australorp's and Orps [​IMG] Now on the website it says these are out but when I called she said with the smaller number she could fill it for me. [​IMG] HUH I'M SURE WHEN I STARTED HERE THAT SOMEONE TOLD ME CHICKENS ARE ADDICTIVE? I DIDN'T BELIEVE THEM [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I am having the time of my life with these babies though! I LOVE THEM!

    Woo hoo! You could probably write a book on your chicken-related experiences with all that going on (or maybe not-- you are probably too busy to write a book!). What kind of orpingtons are you getting? I think those are so pretty. [​IMG]

    I can totally appreciate the anticipation... FloridaChickenChick and I are going to get her peeplings Saturday morning and it is killin' me to wait!

    I am getting buff orps BUT am ordering blue/splash orps from western chick this week. Have to have a blue and splash orp. I LOVE them. LOL SO I will be getting 4-6 eggs on top of all these little guys. I have to run to walmart and get another brooder box. I hope all her chicks arrive safely! Two weeks ago I went through Ideal and decided to try them again as the first batch went very well!
