    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!

    It is entertaining to watch the chickens run and jump after bugs. You will enjoy raising them. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Make sure you have a secure place for your feed like a tote and you shouldn't get bugs.
