    I just ordered my first dozen of chickens from Ideal...I'm so excited I can't sit still!![​IMG]

    Here is my order:

    Silver Laced Wyandotte 2
    Black Australorp 2
    Ameraucanas 2
    Barred Rock 2
    White Plymouth Rock 2
    Gold Sex Link 2

    I chose the March 11th delivery date & I'm so excited to have this great site for reference. I live in a Metro area and everyone looks at me like I'm crazy for getting chickens, but I have you all to remind me that they're the crazy ones [​IMG]

    Congrats on your order. I was so happy with my first Ideal order I had to place another. They should be here tomorrow. [​IMG]

    I got SL Wyandottes and Black Austorlorps in my first order. They are very sweet and have started laying at around 22 weeks.

    Quote:Thanks for the info on the Wyan & Austrorlorps. The Austorlorps were a last minute decision, my dh wanted at least a dozen, so I chose them. I have read a few posts about how sweet they are...can't wait!

    I don't have any Australorps but my mother has one at her house. If they are all like her I would take a million of them! She has more personality than any dog and most people!

    Congrats on the babies!!! You are going to LOVE being a chickie momma!!!
