    First time buying chicks instead of eggs, my daughter asked me to PLEASE not hatch she hates waiting for the babies to hatch lol I also wanted all pullets so easiest way was to order. I got 3 Ameraucana, 4 Brahmas, and 3 mystery pullets! We're so excited! We will get them Sept. 11th, we just got a new house and have to build our coop up again! No one understands my excitement but I know you guys do!!! [​IMG]

    Congrats!!! Where did you order them from and how was Ameraucana spelled? I'm asking because most hatcheries purposely misspell Ameraucana "AmerIcana" , with an "I" so they cannot be called lairs for selling mixed bred Easter Egger chickens. New babies are always wonderful. I am a hatching addict myself.

    haha I so checked that! It was with a "U" but I would have been ok with mixes too, Im not picky-- after all I started out in chickens back in 09' with rescued jungle fowl eggs I found after they mowed down a nest, all but three eggs were crushed... We lived overseas where chickens roamed free lol I ordered from Ideal bc they are only a few hours from me, I was a little disappointed bc I really wanted some crested chicks but they only offered st runs and I don't want anymore roos right now!

    OF course! Pictures are my forte so I can assure you there will plenty to be had! [​IMG] I ordered from Ideal so it would be easier on the chicks. I had ducks some years back, they were so much fun!
