Hi all! Brand new to chickens. My 8 yr old daughter joined 4H this year and decided she wanted to show chickens. So we ordered 1/2 dz white black tailed japanese (her number one choice) and 1/2 dz light brahma bantams (her other top choice) from ideal. We lost 1 brahma but the others are 3 wks and getting bigger! Ideal also threw in 5 rhode island reds (I guess for warmth) and my 2 1/2 yr old son has laid claim to them. No shortness of love for the chickens! Sorry this is wordy, but wanted to give all a good idea of the family in the intro.
