    Hi all,
    I posted about needing chicks and lo and behold a fellow byc member emailed me and is letting me share hers! Maine Chicken came through and I'm so thrilled and excited! I went to blue seal this morning and the brooder is all outfitted. I keep staring inside it as though chicks will magically appear. I can't wait 'till they arrive!
    I'll post pics when they're here. Thank you all for the advice you've already shared with me, I know I'll be back with tons of questions.

    [​IMG] Glad it worked out for both of us. I knew when I placed my order I wasn't going to keep all the chicks, and I surely feel better about them going to someone here on BYC than just selling them in a local ad. If they came from BYC, then they want to learn and will do the best to take good care of them!

    I could have sold more, though... Maybe next year I will plan to split an order with people here- that way people can get what they want.

    stitch - I ordered fifteen chicks and five Guinea keets. I'm getting one dark Brahma (a Roo) and one buff Brahma hen, two Orps, two Black Sex-link, two Silkies (hoping at least one is a hen), two Ameraucanas, one silver laced and one golden laced Wyandotte, two Sussex and one Welsummer!!

    How's that for a mix? They should all be pullets except the Brahma Roo I ordered and, of course, it's a guess with the Silkies.

    I'd love to see pictures of your Brahma bantams. I ordered all Standards as we need the larger eggs.

    OK, i'm addicted before they even come! I raised chickens as a child, we had a coop and chickens my whole life. I remember candling eggs and staying up watching the incubator. Trips to the feed store for new birds (I can still remember their phone number all these years later). I just needed to wait until my life calmed down a bit (six kids, full time nights, you know how it is). Now I'm home full time, kids are all a bit bigger (my youngest is 6) and I'm ready.

    Kids are all ready too. I have five farm hands to help me! (one's at college)

    I'm so glad to have found this message board!
