    Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself and say I'm excited to be here. My family is expecting our first chicks in mid-April and are looking forward to meeting them. We're in Minnesota and will be raising them in the suburbs. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hey neighbor! I'm from North Dakota and I'm fairly new to BYC. I'm loving it and find I spend quite a bit of time on the site. What breeds are you getting? When I brought my first batch home, it was like bringing a baby home from the hospital-I was so excited! I have a nice sized flock but am looking forward to a few new babies in the spring. Feel free to ask any of us questions.

    Thanks!

    I'm getting a Barred Plymouth Rock, a Golden Wyandotte, a Buff Brahma, and a Golden Orpington.

    It sounds like you'll be getting a lovely flock! I'm a big fan of the Wyandotte breed, especially.

    Where did you find so few babies? Most hatcheries have a minimum of 15..
