I am looking to order my chicks for next year and getting my list ready. McMurray already has the new schedule up (it wasn't this weekend). They ship starting January 1st. I ordered my chicks last year at the end of March and I feel it may have been too cold, but would like to order them sooner this year. This way I feel I will get a better variety to pick from and they can be older and out of the house as soon as it gets warm here. What do you all think?
