    I live in North Carolina and just ordered some babies! My Husband raised pheasants when he was in college and I have raised Mallard ducks for years but chickens will be new! I have ordered 25 day old chicks that will be here at the end of March.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    You'll be getting a nice variety of breeds! They should all be very good layers and quite docile.
