    About a year ago I bought a house with 3 acres and have been threatening to get chickens. Well the time has come and I've got 25 of them on their way March 19th. I am SOOO nervous. I already have my brooder set up and am in the process of trying to build a 8ftX12ft coop attached to a 10ftx24ft run for starters (I have never built a thing in my life). I am wondering, since I live in GA when you all think the chicks would arrive. I also would like to say that most everyone on this site seems great and I have learned an enormous amount of info just reading, rereading posts. So, thank you all.

    This waiting thing is NO fun at all!

    I live in middle Ga, Byron to be exact. I find myself at this computer whenever I get a free moment. This chicken stuff is very addictive. I wonder if there is a rehab center close by.

    Welcome aboard. Great group of people here and tons of expertise in all things poultry.

    Rehab ... Why would anyone here want to go to rehab when we are having so much fun?

    Chickens are a great stress reliever, once you get past the first chick nerves.

    You may just get them on the 20th. Ideal seems to ship early enough in the day to catch early postal connections. I would be phoning your postal outlet a few days in advance to let them know they are coming.

    Welcome! It usually takes 2 days from the time of shipment for the chicks to arrive at your local PO for pick up.
