    We are going on vacation next week and so we have waited to get our chicks. I am going to order them to arrive after we return from vacation. But my DH hasn't wanted to start on the coop until we return, either. So I am trying to plan on the chicks arriving so that we have plenty of time to build the coop.

    that probably didn't make much sense, but eh... [​IMG]

    So from the day the chicks arrive until they go in their new home, how many weeks is it? We are planning on ordering Australorps.

    Thanks for any responses [​IMG]

    I think, depending on the weather, but around 5weeks at least.

    Thanks! I may have to wait until we start. It will probably take us about 2 months to build the coop. Course then we are getting deep into summer.. Decisions, decisions.
