    Well I finally did it, I placed my order of chicks today (Ideal) [​IMG] for a delivery date around August 10th.
    I ordered:
    Americana's X 2
    California White X 2
    Buff Orpington X 3
    Rhode Island Red X 2

    I also tried to order some Cuckoo Maran's but they won't be able to ship those that late. SO.... I'm thinking of adding a couple of Ducks instead of the Maran's.

    I'm rather proud of myself, its a small order, but plenty for us, I'm sure there will be eggs a-plenty in a couple of years!

    - - now on to picking some Ducks, I'm thinking either Swedish Blue or Cuyaga's... [​IMG]

    I know how excitiedyou must be about placing yourorder for the chicks, I placed my first order a few days ago and the babies should be getting here the 20th of this month. I already have two chicks that have already moved outside which are a Plmouth white rock and a buff.
    i have coming 20 babies all total
    5 black Dutch
    5 light Brahma bantams
    5 Ameraucana
    5 mixed breeders choice

    so we will have plenty of babies and plenty of eggs for all the friends and family.

    As for ducks I have a white pekin and a crested/mallard mix - watch out for baby ducks they poo-poo every where, messy little fluff balls but so cute it is worth it !!

    have fun when your babies get there.

    ducks are messy, but SO much fun to watch! I tried putting them in with the chickens, but they get water everywhere!
