I think my chicks are in the mail. They were supposed to be shipped yesterday but have yet to get a conformation on that... And here I sit playing the waiting game wondering if I ordered the correct amount, if they will be alright when they get here as we have had record heat yesterday, and it is still pretty hot today. So how did every one else survive the wait game? Me, I keep going on here and learning all there is to know and going out on craigslist, which happens to be a dangerous place to be as I found more chicks about an hour + away from me. Which got me thinking about the poor silkie chicken out in the coop that seems to be getting ignored and wouldn't it be nice if she had a friend or two- so Now I have committed to going on a road trip with my kids to see the silkie chicks and get a few more chicks :>P I also found laying hens which really tempted me as the chickens in the pen are only 14 weeks old and not quite laying.
