    I'm so excited as I just placed my first order for pullets! We won't be getting them until the middle of May, so hopefully that gives me enough time to get my act together and build the coop. Here's what's comin' our way:

    10 White Broilers
    1 Light Brahma
    1 Barred Rock
    1 Buff Orpington
    1 Black Australorp
    1 Golden Laced Wyandotte
    3 Ameraucanas

    It feels like Christmas all over again. I placed an order for bees a few weeks ago, now chickens!

    Yay so much fun! Its almost my 1st year aniversary of owning chickens! I ordered mine February 9th last year, and now I'm 100% addicted! And we've got 2 coops with another on the way soon. I like meyer too, they seem very nice.

    I am aware of Chicken Math, so I better be careful. At least my wife is just as excited as I am about their arrival. Yeah, I've read and watched good things about Meyers, plus they're in Ohio so they won't have to be in transit too long to get to NY.

    Quote:I know! I spent $38 for fifteen Buff Orpington pullets (chicks) and the shipping bumped the price all the way up to $58 [​IMG]
