    We just drove to Whitmore Farm (whitmorefarm.com) in western Maryland and picked up our first flock of chickens! We ordered eight, but the owner was nice and gave us an extra so we can hope to get enough hens. It was a great trip and our babies are doing well in the brooder. Now I just need to finish their coop before they need it. Almost done!

    He showed us how to look for splash vs blue and I think he gave us three each of blue, black, and splash! My daughter is especially excited for the splash.

    So cute!

    Hi, congrats on your new chicks! I remember that day, my mom driving me home while my 3 new ameraucanas slept in my hands. [​IMG]
    Your chicks are adorable! Expect them to turn into mini vultures within a couple weeks, though. [​IMG] They sure grow fast.
    Keep us updated, with pictures!! Have fun with your chicks!

    I work with youth so I'm familiar with the human juvenile gangly phase [​IMG]. Will do on the pics!
