I have 20 3-week old silkie chicks and 20 day-old welsummer's arriving next week....But, I CAN'T WAIT to start getting eggs! I'm chomping at the bit, eventhough I know it's months away! Maybe i should get some older pullets... I'm sure my hubby would love that! HA! Is anyone else out there with their first batch of babies as inexplainable excited as me? The worst part is...these are my daughters' 4-h projects - not even my birds!
