    I made myself wait until march until i get my chicks or eggs. Too bad you live so far away from me or i would get some of your surplus chicks.

    I have a sneaking suspicion you will find someone right here to help take those extra's off your hands....

    haha! i think i wont have tooooo much trouble getting rid of the extras, but if there is someone from southern nv or southern ut who wants some babies, you just let me know!!! i can also add to the order if you want something else, which would just KILL me!!! haha, i really wanted to order some cochins, and i still might, but i think i am already in trouble. i also thought of sneaking a turkey poult in there.... *sigh* i love me some fuzzy butts.

    The whole waiting thing is what made me get the sexlinks. I really want some leghorn but I dont want to wait. Maybe after I have gotten these that I am expecting from Ideal to the laying stage I might go ahead and get some that I have to wait months for. My goal is to get 1 million eggs a day (not really). I would like about 6 dozen a day though so I can become a millionaire!!!!!

    Congradulations on your order and may your wait be pleasant.

    i am kinda glad i have to wait, cuz its gets real cold here during the winter, and i dont want a million dollar heating bill, just to get my 6 million eggs!!! haha, i told dh we would end up with about 15 chickens (we already have 5)... so yeah right. its more like double that, but i think he loves me enough!
