I purchased my first chicks (RIR'S) two weeks ago. I ended up buying twelve chicks and have just fallen in love with them. I have had such a good time with my RIR's, I have ordered 20 Red Sex Link pullets, which are due to arrive sometime in May. Now that I have put some thought into this, I have realized that I am going to have 32 chickens!!! Have I over done it? I think I have chicken fever!!!
