    I have been reading the boards for a little while but I am a first time poster. I live in a small town in SW pennsylvania (about 40 miles outside of Pittsburgh ) I am fairly new to raising chickens and reading these forums over the past few weeks has been a really big help to me. I have a small flock with a variety of breeds both Standards and Bantams I have also recently ordered a batch of chicks from MMcM that arrived earlier in the week. I really enjoy my birds and am looking forward to all of the knowledge and advice I can get discussing this new hobby of mine with everyone

    Hi Carmelchickie... Yes all of my chicks from Murray arrived healthy and in good shape, I did lose a cochin bantam on the second day that just didn't thrive I suppose but the rest are all doing well. My chickens get along pretty good, there is some picking but I actually have a pair of OE banties that will stand their ground against the bigger gals. I keep my more docile birds (like silkies and cochins) in their own coop and it seems to be working pretty well. Good luck with your order, I know I just couldn't wait to get mine and was so excited to walk in the post office and hear all of that little chirping [​IMG]
