I placed my order for 25 chicks last Friday and selected an April 23rd delivery date. I figured that living in Michigan, that would be a safe bet for somewhat warmer weather and a safer transit for the chicks, along with giving me plenty of time to get the coop finished up. Oh, but I'm so jealous reading all the posts from people who are receiving their chicks now! The photos are just too cute! The next 9 weeks are going to be agony!!! I can't wait for them to arrive!
