I have an order from Cackle Hatchery for 55 Delawares due to arrive on March 30th. I also have an Order from Central Hatchery for 100 RIR due around April 20th. 3rd and lastly I have about 30-35 Cuckoo Marans next friday that a friend of mine is hatching. Today I went to the local Atwoods down the street and I was there to buy 2 chick feeders and 2 waterers and I heard the peep peeps on the next aisle. Next thing I know I bought 15 Pullets, 40# or medicated chick starter, 2 feeders and a waterer. I got 7 black sexlinks, and either 8 Buffs or RIR, I can't tell. They are around 4 days old I think and are running around and peeping.

I am getting the RSL to raise to rotate my flock of 25 RSL that are 1 year old. I am going to start breeding Delawares, Rsl from a RIR roo and Delaware hens, Wellsummers, Arucanas, and maybe White Leghorns.

Here they are!

Wow and people don't believe me when I say count on chicken math in the future. When I went to buy my first chickens I was wanting 20-25 chickens. I came home with 55 chickens at $3 a piece. I had 5 three week olds 25 two month olds, and 25 Three month olds. Out of that bunch there was only 11 Roosters! I have sold all of those birds because they were mostly mixes of Buff Orphingtons and RIR's. Now I have all true breed Chickens and I will have around 150-200 chicks in the coming this spring! These breeds are 20-30 Cuckoo Marans, Delawares, 100 Red Stars, 20-30 Arucona, and maybe 50 White Leghorns pullets with a few Roosters!

I love ChIckens!

UPDATE!!!

I now have 40 3-4 weeks old and I now have them OFF HEAT! They are still in a 4x10 Brooder in my Shop they are soon to go outside in the barn in the coop! Now that I have 27 or more Delawares coming on the March 30-April 2 and then 100 RIR pullets and 25 Cornish Cross on April 20-23. I'm probably going to keep 25 RIR Pullets and sell the 75 at 4-6 weeks.

2 weeks ago.
