    Those are nice breeds, you'll get a lot of eggs from those 4. We have both breeds in our mixed flock and have been very satisfied with them, both for their eggs and for their personalities.

    I hope you'll share a picture of them when they arrive!

    I can provide you with a little more chick fodder. If you have the time, check out the adventures of Scout. The link is in my signature below. That was one special little chick with a worldwide fan club!

    Ladies, I am 2, maybe 3 (depending on the US Postal Service) days away from receiving my chicks. I can barely stand it. I'm so excited! I spent the day yesterday building my chick cave for mama heating pad and modifying my brooder. I'm in the process of building a new brooder, what I call my pretty brooder, but it won't be ready for a week or so. Anyway, I'm so excited! And I wanted to share my excitement with people who understand it!
