    NOW WHAT DO I DO LOL!!! never had day old chicks beofre, but I guess technically they will be 2 day old chicks when they arrive.. kinda scary, excited and keep asking myself "what did you do" HAHAHA
    anyhoo they will not ship till the 5th of Sept, so I have time to come to terms with it.. :O)
    ordered them from Welp Hatchery, they were the only ones who had the Jersey Giants and the standard Cochins.. split the order to 20 of each.. NOW THE FUN BEGINS!!
    someone tell me I am NOT mental..........

    You're not mental. Now the fun begins!

    Now you need to go to the 'raising baby chicks' section and take a gander at brooders.

    Good Luck, you'll have a ball!

    My Jersey Giants are a riot. They are still growing into their bone structure so they run around looking like vultures. They are huge. Can't imagine what they'll look like when they FINALLY stop filling out. They mature Soooo Slowly. But they're sweet.
