Well, its been a month since Ive ordered chicks, my order still hasn't been made because everyones chicks are on back order and Im still on a waiting list . And I just found out today that my order for May 1st has been pushed back to May 31st....sigh. This will be my first time being a chick mommy, Ive done all the reading, my brooder is ready to go....and now this I aslo found a place that is getting chicks in every Friday in another town, but I will have to get there way early because they are selling out in that one day and Ive heard that people have waited up to 2 hours waiting in line to get chicks. Sooooo, I guess Ill get up really early so I can be there at 7 am and have my face pressed up against the glass window's saying "open,open,open"(doors open at 8am). Wish me luck! And all I have to say is I hope those parts for my used(but new to me)bator get here soon so maybe I wont have to do this agian, i'll just be pulling me hair out over hatching eggs cause Ive not done that yet either LOL Oh, I am so jealous reading all the posts that everyone has gottin their chicks in the mail , or feed store everywhere else having chicks..."Big Sigh"
