Paid for my order of chicks from Meyer Hatchery today, so I am 100% committed at this point! Is it normal to feel like your going to puke from excitement? Lol. Can't wait to get them. I figure they were laid today.....as our shipment goes out on the 27-28th of October. Ordered 6--3 Black Australorps, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 1 Golden Buff--and Meyer's said since it is 6, they will come Express Mail...which I like better. Should be here next day, and hopefully that cuts way down on the stress. Now to kick coop build into overdrive. I have the floor framed...and that's it. Hoping to get it done next week....I took vacation days to do it, so better be productive! Cant wait!
