    Congrats! I couldn't suggest which ones to get any better than get a little of everything! LOL! That is about what I did. I actuallyenjoy my turkeys alot. They have a tendency to be very curious and like to follow you around. I hope you get exactly what you want! [​IMG]

    Turkens are the chickens without any feathers on their necks. They are strong willed and the best that I can tell so far are fairly quiet. The group that I have keep to themselves from the other chickens. Hope this helps.

    Buff orpingtons are the friendliest i ever met. I will always favor them.

    Where in Houston do they have chick available tomorrow? Is Ideal sending you a mix? I didn't think the PO was going to deliver tomorrow, so I guess you are getting them from somewhere else...Just curious.

    ok we got there at 2:40 and we left at 4:00 lol and when i was there i was just wandering around repeating to myself what i need DE, straw, chickens, feed, grit, oyster shell, what was the rest!!! lol so i got in there i was looking at the chickens for 30 mins and then i went to the front and asked if the DE is food grade and ya so i went back there talked to a guy about feed for what seemed like 38274298 hours lol so i go and get the chickens and when i go to ring up he asked which one was my favorite and i said the back and white one and he is like you have a b/w hen and im like what... "ya" and he said it was a rooster and so on blah blah blah the rest of the story is on the post above me. lol
