    Hi! Today I placed an order for 6 chicks. I requested them to ship late August as we will be gone for the summer. I was just going to order 4, but I added 2 more just in case a couple don't make it...
    I ordered an Australorps, 2 Easter Eggers, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, and a Blue Cochin.

    I'm very excited about them. We are going to build a coop before we go on vacation this summer, and I'll get the baby chick essentials also.
    Would a plastic tub with high sides be good for them? I can't wait to get them! This is going to be so fun for us and our two children!

    I'm so glad to welcome you to the flock of fellow chicken lovers. Good luck with your babies. Can I ask from whence these little fluffy blessings will be coming? [​IMG]
