Have you been wondering...where are the chickens???
Well, it has been a bit more difficult than we thought it was going to be to find the chickens we want. Or maybe Mrs. H. has been a bit more picky than Mr. H. expected. ;-) After spending many, many days and many, many hours calling, going, and running into dead ends, we've decided to go a different route. Instead of trying to start with older pullets, I've had a change of heart and decided I want to start with baby chicks.
So now I am even more nervous and even more excited. I have placed on order at My Pet Chicken! My baby chicks will be hatching July 26th and on their way express mailed to me when they are just a few hours old! I so hope that they arrive safely and that I am able to keep them alive. They will have to be in a little chicken brooder with a heat lamp until all of their feathers come in at about 5-6 weeks of age. Then they can move into their wonderful coop. This is going to be an ADVENTURE! :-)
