12 baby chicks

My order of 25 baby chicks didn’t happen as the company that I was supposed to get them from flaked out. Only after calling the hatchery again did I get told that two of the chicken breeds  in my order weren’t going to be ready this year. I don’t know why they didn’t call me to at least let me know so I could make other arraignments. The other hatchery that I called up to see if I could get chicks from them was all sold out. So that left me scrambling around town trying to find some chicks. Most were sold out as chick season is almost over and I only got one breed that I was wanting. Next year I will be putting my order in for chicks at a bigger hatchery so I won’t have this problem.

I ended up getting….

  • 4 Barred Rocks
  • 3 Rhode Island Reds
  • 2 Golden Laced Wyandottes
  • 2 Araucanas
  • 1 Sumatra

Lee set up the box for them early this morning. We are going to keep them in the house until we can’t stand it as the coop isn’t quite ready for them. The box he made will expand as we need it to.
