Since our coop is almost finished (just putting on the last coat of paint), I went ahead and ordered some day olds from Ideal yesterday. I was so excited because all the chicks I picked showed a date for next week. I just got the email from them that they will not ship until 9/1. Bummer! Although I'm sure it is a blessing in disguise, as August is turning out to be a really busy month for my business, plus I am just swamped all over the place. I already have 2 Polish, one's a roo, so I ordered: 2 Dominiques 2 Patridge Cochins 2 Buff Orps 2 Light Brahmas 1 Iowa Blue 1 Spangled Orloff I may have to find a home for a few ~possibly~, because I had to order a couple extra to meet the minimum, but I do free range a lot, so hopefully they will be ok together. I'm sure it won't be hard to find a place for them if I need to. Can't wait for them to get here!
