    I ordered 13 barred rock chicks from Ideal Poultry. They shipped on Monday and the post office called me at 6:30 this moring to let me know they had arrived. [​IMG] I had 12 in the box and one was doa. I chose not to have the extra males added for warmth and with these temps, they seem to be pretty happy and healthy.

    I guess these are checking to see if the temp is just right! [​IMG]

    Congats on your new fuzzie butts! [​IMG]
    I love my Barred Rock as she is so curious and friendly as well as a fantastic layer--she started to lay in September (she is now 8 1/2 months) and has given us 6 eggs a week since!
    Take lots of pictures as they grow sooo fast. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new babies! Adorable. [​IMG]
    I agree, BRs are wonderful and bossy. I have 10 of the little sassy monsters and I LOVE them.

    How exciting! My chicks hatch date isn't until Feb 23rd, then I pick them up personally. Out of ten chicks ordered, two will be Barred Rock. I can't hardly wait. Congratulations![​IMG]

    We would also like to start raising chickens. How do I find out the laws for my area, Waynesville, Ohio, Warren County? I checked the chikenlore, but our town and county are not listed.
