    I picked up my chicks today :) I was going to go through a hatchery with a friend (you have to order 25 through the hatchery up here) but she backed out on me. So I ended up going through a local breeder instead, which I think I'm glad I did! She was wonderful and even gave me a care package, plus I got to see a chick hatch in her incubator!

    Mine are 2 weeks old, not day olds, so not quite as perfectly cute and fluffy but still pretty cute. I got 10 of them, 5 GLWs and 5 SLWs. They are straight run so it'll be fun to see which are pullets and which are roos!

    Thank you!! *fingers crossed* I want 5-6 laying hens so hopefully I get that many :) I bought 10 because I figured it was a 50/50 chance.

    Oooh fun!! While I was at the breeder's she had some hatching today in an incubator! So I got to see one hatch, so fun :) I'd love to do that one day too! Now I'll be waiting for your updates!

    They are gorgeous all grown up aren't they? I got to meet my chickies' parents and they are so beautiful! Quite friendly and docile too. I really want to find some of the BLR ones but nobody up here seems to breed them :p
