    I ordered 150 chicks from Meyer hatchery, set to ship out tomorrow. First time using Meyer but with the good reviews, i have no worries. Ordered the frypan bargan and cornishx broilers to fill the freezer, and blue andalusians to add to the laying flock. Plan on trading off about 50 of the roos for st run jersey giants set by a friends dad locally. Will post pics once they arrive and i have finished off the brooder the way i want it.
