    Anyone getting spring chicks this year!? I placed my order about a week and a half ago and I am impatiently waiting! Lol I am getting 5 chicks from Meyer Hatchery with a hatch date of April 29th and I am so excited!!! We already have 7 chickens from Meyer Hatchery and I love them. They just turned 3 in October. I am excited to meet the new little babies. April can’t come soon enough! Lol

    We currently have 1 Barred Rock, 2 Black Australorps, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 2 Easter Eggers.

    The new chicks are one each of Speckled Sussex, Delaware, Easter Egger, White Leghorn, and Partridge Rock.

    Sooo excited. :D

    Anyone else getting chicks this spring!?

    I would love spring chicks considering we have room for more. I would love to add a couple more polishes and some wyandottes to the flock.

    OMG they are soooo cute!! :love

    I almost added Wyandottes but I had to narrow it down and they got cut. I wish I had ordered some though as they are gorgeous! But oh well. Maybe I will pick some up at the feed store :D

    Yes, the Polish are what I built my flock around. This is my second shipment. The first arrived DOA as I was stupid enough to have them shipped during the Polar Vortex. Don't do that.

    what kind of ducks? I accidently bought 7 little balls at the feed store a year ago. Now have a wandering flock of 12 Welsh Harlequins. LOVE the duck eggs!
