Hi to everyone! This site has been my go-to since before we got our chicks. Everyone is so helpful and I hope as I learn more I can be a help to someone too. My first chicks were hatched Monday 4/10/17. We ordered 16 from Meyer hatchery. It was 15 for the all pullet rainbow assortment guaranteeing at least 5 different breeds. We also ordered a buff orpington roo on recommendation by the online assistance person from Meyer (my husband wanted a roo to fertilize eggs). We also got the Meyer meal maker to make 17. 1 was diagnosed, so only 16. Then my husband saw we didn't have any black chicks, so he went and got 5 barred rocks and 2 pearl white leghorns. Up to 23 and then one of the original 16 died overnight. No signs of disease, I think she was just too stressed in shipping and let go. The rest are doing fine except one, but I'll post my question about her in another forum. So glad to have this site and you all as a resource!
