    Yes! I have been doing a ton of research for a few months. We were planning on getting chickens in spring but too good of a deal came along to pass up and here we are picking them up this weekend!

    They are red sex linked and brahma. Very pretty birds. The previous owner said they are laying about 2 dozen eggs a day! We didn't plan on getting this many birds but we got the birds, incubators, and all sorts of supplies for such a low price! The precious owner is moving to a different state so he just wanted them gone!
