    Hi Everyone, I've been lurking for a few months & finally got my chicks in the mail so I had to sign up for all the help I'll probably be needing. I'm a city girl from Philly who now lives in Puerto Rico & I don't know anything at all about what I'm going to be doing. After the hurricane, we decided to plant lots of stuff ( I'm a vegan) & get a few chickens for eggs(not meat) for the rest of the family. So while searching online for hatcheries, I found your site. I placed 2 orders, 1 from Cackle & the other from Welp. So I ended up with several Columbian Wyandottes for the eggs & a whole bunch of cute little bantams just to look at. The list of Bantams: Sebrights in lots of colors, golden & porcelain D'uccles, varied Cochins, varied Ameraucanas, Belgian Quails, self blue Old English,varied Silkies, & varied Kirikikis(sp?) that we got locally.The total is 93 chicks. I think I'm way over my head but my hubby will take over once they're big enough to be outside so I hope I can make it. :fl

    Thanks. I did use your site for coop ideas as well. Hubby has been building on his days off from work for the past few weeks.Hopefully they'll be done before the chicks get too big to be indoors. We have them in a spare room for now. Yeah 93 is a lot. I kind of went crazy with all the cuteness. Couldn't resist.

    :frow Welcome from New Orleans, hope things go well for your family and chickens. The eggs may be a good thing to barter with for other things you may want or need, or just another way you can help others who are less fortunate! Glad you got so many chickens, I personally think you will be glad you did. Good luck! We are rooting for you here.
