I got a shipping date for my 6 chicks!! Aug. 25th, it would have been earlier, but we'll be gone for vacation and we didn't want to get chicks before we left. It's very exciting for me, and I wanted to share! I'm planning to get chick supplies in the next week, except the food, I don't want bugs to get attracted to it...Bugs really disturb me. I am hoping the chickens will help keep the bug population down out back! I am really looking forward to raising baby chicks into healthy chickens. I think it will be a great experience for my toddler too!
