    Seven days left till the chicks get here! They are coming from Cackle Hatchery. This is my first time receiving mail order chicks, so I'm nervous and excited. Oh, I can't wait!

    Ordering chicks is extremely nerve racking! I lost count of how many panic attacks I had the first time, lol. I've never ordered from cackle hatchery so please let me know how it goes. What breeds did you get?

    Oh yes. I have 12? Laying hens and a Silkie (cotton) and a Muscovy duck (baby) . These are my first 'real' breeding project, although I did breed muscovys a year ago.

    Cotten that's so cute for a silkie. I hope your breeding project goes well :). I've never bred mine before but I just got a BCM rooster so I might be soon.

    I just took possession of a Cuckoo Marans and three (make that four, they sent an extra!) Easter Egger Pullet/chicks myself today and all arrived eager and happily cheeping. All are doing fine in their new home. Every bit worth the $26 shipping cost. May your experience be as gleefull.
