    My first post:

    Ordered the bargain #2, 200 chicks 50 dollars, plus 29 shipping. Went to post office at 7am picked them up. The thermometer read 19 in my truck.
    I Came home and counted them, saw that they split them 3 ways: 51 Arauncanas, 51 barred rock, 104 Buff Orpington (6 extra). 1 was doa, 1 looks like it'll never walk, others look pretty healthy. I live in North of Greensboro NC, I was a little concerned about ordering this time of year, so far so good.

    Start big...sounds like a plan. I am working toward the 2 year mark, and just ordered my first batch of chicks through the mail. Only 102 for me from McMurray's. They are scheduled to arrive the week of the 30th. I am anxious. We'll have to see pics of your babies!!!! Welcome to BYC. This is where all the chickens people live.
