    Hi Everyone!

    My name is Alyce, and my order for 25 baby chicks are getting shipped TOMORROW! I have ordered 6 layers and 19 broilers. The broilers are 15 Cornish Cross straight runs and 4 male Red Rangers. The layers are: Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Black Australorp, and an Americana. They were ordered from Hoover's Hatchery. This is my first time giving chickens a try, and it's a very exciting experience. I've already set up a brooder made from an upcycled old dresser I got for free. I hope you will all join me in this wonderful journey!

    Thanks!
