Hello everyone! I'm Jordan, 25 year mom to a 6 year old daughter (homeschooled) and 17 month old son. I have been waiting to get chicks since I was 7 or 8 and just ordered my first chicks! I am so excited to start my homesteading dreams. We are expecting 2 Araucanas, 2 Australorps, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Columbian Wyandottes, one Partridge Cochin hen and one Partridge Cochin Roo. (Fingers crossed! I know what we're expecting can be a lot different than what actually arrives.) We are going in on an order with a friend, so I'm a little nervous about being able to pick our chicks out of the mix. Considering just upping our order to 25 and getting them ourselves, but that seems like an awful lot to start with, and I don't think my husband would appreciate it overmuch. We haven't built a coop yet. If we order with our friend they'll be here March 18th, if we order ourselves we'll get them a month earlier. Too excited!!
