    I finally did it! I ordered my chicks from Ideal. (All pullets)

    2 Australorps
    2 Buff Orpingtons
    2 Gold Sex Links
    4 Blue Andalusians

    They are scheduled to arrive Mar 19.

    I ordered 4 of the Andalusians in hopes of getting a couple of blues. I'm okay with the blacks and splashes too. I think they'll all look nice with my current barred birds and the other black and gold chicks.

    Yes, my proposed flock has a color scheme! I chose gold over red sex links because of it. I'm sure they'll be easy to distinguish from the buff orps, and still blend in nicely.

    Assuming, of course, that I manage to raise any of them... I'm a little nervous about it. I'll probably feel better about it once I get my brooder set up. I mean, people do this all the time, right?
