    We're eagerly awaiting our first ever batch of chickens, due to arrive in May. Trying to learn as much as we possibly can before their arrival so we can go in prepared. Our 11 chicks will be coming from Meyers Hatchery and will include: 4 EEs, and 2 of each of golden laced, silver laced, and columbian Wyandotte. Oh and #11 is one of their mystery "meal makers"
