    I am so excited!!! I am placing an order for some baby chicks tomorrow. I am going to get 8 Buff Laced Polish chicks and 7 Partridge Cochins. I have always wanted both of these breeds but apparently no one in the area has them. I am getting all pullets, I am hoping to raise them for eggs. If anyone has any tips on these particular breeds I would appreciate the advice!

    XOXO,
    Dakota

    They are so pretty! I wish I could find some buff Brahmas. I used to have one and it was one of my favorites. I've never owned either of the above breeds so it should be an interesting experience.

    Ok so change of plan, the buff Polish weren't available so I ended up getting the Cochins and 4 Golden Polish and 4 Salmon Faverolles. I am so excited to get them. They are three of my favorite breeds!
