    I read a lot of people have their feedstore order chicks for them but I never thought my country feedstore out in the middle if nowhere would. I'm so excited they told me they were getting an order together and would order how ever many of whatever breed I wanted. I'm so happy!! I ordered 10 mille fleur d'Uccles. They are straight run but that's ok hopefully I get a few girls in there.

    My feedstore is collecting orders so they will call me when they get the ship date. I am thinking within a week or two.

    My husband wasn't too excited since I already have other animals but that's ok.

    Awww! Well, sometimes it just takes them having a fresh egg breakfast or chicken dinner to truly appreciate those chickens! ;)
