Hi, my name is Jen. A friend got me addicted to chickens. I just ordered chicks from Ideal. I split it with the friend who got me hooked. I got 6 ameraucanas. She got a variety. We will sell of the rest on craigs list after we have the ones we want picked out. We get them in 2-3 weeks. I have my brooder set up in the garage waiting for them. My husband brought home a produce box that is pallet sized. I used thick screening for windows as a "mosquito net" style covering to keep them in. My husband isn't to excited, but I didn't give him a choice, lol. As long as I don't make him do the dirty work, he will be fine.
