    I'm currently waiting on 7 chicks from mypetchicken.com. One Rhode Island Red, one jersey giant, one barred rock, two Easter eggers, and two buff orpingtons. I can't wait to add them to my other 6 chickens. To have one giant mixed flock of chickens. Their supposed to hatch April 13. Has anybody got any reviews about their website.
