Hi! My name is Steph, I have a son who is almost 19 months, and I just got my first chicks on March 12. I'm pretty sure they're Austra Whites, that's what the lady who I got them from told me. She only wanted 3 but had to buy 6 from TSC so I got the other 3 from her. This is my first time having chickens and I'm so looking forward to getting fresh eggs!

Congrats. BYC is where to come for questions/answers. I am glad that TSC finally came to us. Prior to that, we relied on the auctions to get chicks or shipping. chicks do better with friends, probably why 6 is minimum.

Holy Crow!! Alamogordo!!!!
Did you get your chicks from the TSC there on White Sands Blvd?? Great! I believe your chicks are coming from Privett Hatchery in Portales. I have had great luck with healthy chicks from this hatchery.

There are quite a few New Mexicans here on BYC, but most of them are up near Albuquerque and in the East Mountains. Here is our state thread if you want to do some chatting here...

Well, if you are ever coming up into the mountains, feel free to stop by here! Just send me a PM before you are coming and we can get together!!!

YAY! I've "joined" the thread. lol

Welcome from Illinois. Yes, I know about New Mexico , my sister and her family moved out there many years ago. Just when I learned to spell Albuquerque, She moved to Bernallilo (never spell it right) and my niece is in Rio Rancho. They are not interested in chickens but, they are family!!
