    I am so excited. After MUCH deliberation..I ordered 7. Now comes the hard part...waiting. We have a kids playhouse that is raised a few feet in the air that was on our property when we bought the farm last year. We had talked about tearing it down,but after talking about it we have decided it will be fairly easy to renovate into a chicken coop and run.

    [​IMG]Thats so exciting! What breeds did you decide on? Did you order them from My Pet Chicken (based on # ordered-that was my guess). I ordered 7 from this last summer to add to my flock-all came through great (june) and I took a week off to make sure i was home when they arrived and to have time to spend with them (I live in a rural area).....yes Im certifiably chicken crazy!!! My easter egger from this is the one of the friendliest cute fluff butts ever! and my cochin bantam hen is beautiful!! When do they arrive?
