    Welcome West Islip. I originate from Oceanside. Now am in Sunny AZ.
    Hope you are keeping warm these days. The size of your chicks will depend
    on the breeds that you are getting. No matter, you will have tons of fun.
    Post pix when they arrive. [​IMG]

    We will have a buff Orpington, a speckled Sussex , an araucana and a silver laced Wyondette. I know how big they'll get, but how big will they be at 9 ish weeks old?

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] It's been awhile since I raised chickens, so I can't tell you exactly and also they are different breeds... They will be fairly big already, but nowhere near fully grown yet.
