I am going to get the Brown egg layer mix from my pet chicken 25. And I want to get 5 cochins, and 5 EE, and 5 silkies. Then from murray Mcmurray I am going to get the 15 broiler mix. I'm so freaking excited. It feels like it will be forever until time to get them...I keep looking locally and a few people have the EE and silkies. So I might get those locally...then again I kind of like the idea of getting vaccinated chicks from the hatchery because it appears as though my present flock is suffering a bout with marek's. Of course the adult chickens are just fine. but 2 younger chicks aren't faring so well. So getting vaccinated chicks is sort of a must right? Or am I wrong...?
