I FINALLY found someone to ship me some delawares!!!!!!!!! They are going to be day old chicks and are going to ship out on DEC 10th!!!!! They should be here by the 12th!!! Im so happy!!! I was VERY upset about having to wait until spring!!! So I should have 25 straight runs on the 11th or 12th!! I'll post pics as soon as I have them!! Any tips?? Maybe on getting them quick and hydrated right away. I am going to call and see if they'll put some gro gel in with them and maybe send some along with them for me to give them once they get here. edited to say that I changed my order from Straight Runs to all Pullets!!! oh and they are out of gro-gel...any suggestions on what i can get at tractor supply?
