    Haven't had chickens since I was a kid, now getting back into it.

    Starting coop and run this week and chicks arriving at the end of April from Ideal Poultry.

    Getting Americauna, Gold Sex-Links, and White Leghorn.[​IMG]

    Now the hard part, the waiting.[​IMG]

    It sounds like you'll be getting a lovely varied flock that will lay you lots of eggs someday! I hope all the chicks arrive safely and happily.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us. It is hard to wait to get the chicks after the decision is made. I filled the time deciding on names…and of course picked different ones, once my chicks arrived.

    Good luck, have fun.
