I ORDERED MY CHICKS TODAY!!!!!!! I'm soooooo excited. On August 6th I become a chick mama. I can't wait, but I have to wait. :0( It seems so far away. Plenty of time to finish the coop and make a chicken tractor, right? My guess is, no. It will be here before I know it, I'm sure.

Oh...it won't be long now. What kind did you order? How many did you order? Will you brood them inside your house or out in the coop? Will your coop have electricity? So many questions... :-)
Yay - can't wait for you to join the Chicken Mama Club (the CMC - we should do t-shirts!)...

16, huh? Youre gonna have your hands full for awhile. How do you think Butter is gonna deal with the new residents?

Miss:You'll have to come visit them and while you are here play guitar hero.

farmgirl_dk: I ordered Buff Orpington's, 15 pullets and 1 roo. Inside at first but the DH has made it clear that he wants them moved out to the garage or coop asap. LOL Electricity in the coop is in the future. I'm so happy to be in the club. I saw shirts at walgreens recently that said I'm a chick magnet and had a picture of a little chick on it. Too funny.

Frugalmom: yes, is it bad to hope a few don't make it? Just kidding! We are just going to try to teach her they are part of our pack. Hopefully she won't go gettin' all blood thirsty.
