Hello, My family and I are new to the world of raising poultry. We found a wealth of info on BYC. Thank you to all! So in 2 weeks we will receive our first batch of order from Meyer Hatchery (15 Cuckoo Marans female). Second delivery from mcmurray will be delivered end of October (25 chicks: Aracauna, buff Orpington, barred rock, and silver laced Wyandotte females). Mcmurray was all sold out of Cuckoo Marans, hence 2 different hatcheries. We are sooooo excited. Can't wait. Hopefully, the chicks arrive safely. Our coop will be delivered shortly. Went a little overboard, but wanted to make sure chicks have safe home.
