    Hi! I'm new here. I just ordered 24 chicks and can't wait.

    I grew up with layers around and broilers each summer. Just enough for our family use. We mostly bought meat kings for eating and had barred rocks or Rhode Island Reds for layers.

    My husband and I just built a new house and I felt I needed some hens around the place so I decided to order and my 10 year old son insisted on Ameraucanas!

    The breeder guy called today to say he had the eggs lined up and they should hatch out in 21 days.

    You will love having the green/blue eggs. They are a favorite at our house.

    Wow, what quick responses! I think I'll be mostly reading for a few days seeing what questions have already been asked and trying to remind myself what to do with these chicks when they arrive!
