    I hope I attached the picture correctly. I ended up taking 7 more than I was supposed to, I couldn't resist!

    Not sure what the additional 7 are, but I did get 8 RIR's, 8 BR's and 8 Aracunas.

    If anyone can help identify the others, I would be very apprectiative!

    Thank you,

    gloria - Mommy to 31 chickies!

    Oops, forgive me I'm very new to this. Here is the link for my babies, all 31 of them!


    They are in a home made 8 ft long by 3 ft wide cage that my brother in law made.

    Their coop is being built inbetween the rain drops as it has done nothing but rain here in Western Kentucky.

    They were hatched on Wednesday, April 23 and all seem to be fine and are having a ball exploring their new home.

    I forgot to mention that we had made adjustments to the coop/running area.

    I hope a 12 x 15 foot coop will suit 31 as we only planned on 24. They will have a 20 ft x 20 ft run. I hope my dimensions aren't off now that I've adopted others.

    I will send pics of the coop when it is done. I have been taking some as the building as been going on. So far the concrete and posts are in as well as the floor and two framed walls.

    SQUEEEEE!!!! Too cute! And apparantly nothing wrong with their appetites, they have their heads buried in the feeder like little piggies.

    You have plenty of space, especially with a nice size run. These are lucky chickies!

    OOHHH, mine are supposed to arrive by Friday, so it's giving me some eye candy for the end of the week [​IMG]

    We've made a brooder from a wagon we don't use. I'll post a pic once we have them warmed and settled.

    Adorable!! Mine arrived yesterday and now I have a 2 year old son that feels a little neglected. Enjoy them, they are beauties. Coop size is more than ample if you go by the 4sqft/chick rule.
