    Howdy. Just ordered my chicks from the local Farm & Fleet last weekend (2-Sussex, 2-Auracana, 2-R.I.R., 1-Orpington, & 1-Brahma). I've got about three weeks until they arrive, and am finalizing my plans for a chicken tractor/ark with the coop on top, run underneath. I guess I'm in the, "so excited I'd like to quit my job to do this stage". Hope that continues.[​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum!

    It's the "wait" that's always hard.

    But it seems you'll be busy with your tractor/ark coop, so those three weeks will be here in no time!

    Sheila3935 is right...you WILL want more chickens. Have you been introduced to "chicken math?"
