Giddy For Chickens!

Monday, March 8, 2010

I'm so excited about getting my chickens! I spent several days pouring over loads of information, trying to decide what breed(s) to get. Im partial to white eggs so Im making sure to get white and brown egg-layers. After much debate I've decided on the following...

Leghorns....5 hens and 2 roosters

Silver Laced Wyandottes...5 straight run (meaning unsexed chicks)

Light Brahma's...5 straight run. Look at their cute little feather feet!

And last but certainly not least, a couple gobblers! Arent they just beautiful?! They are called "Royal Palms". We are getting two and no...we are NOT eating them!

I got the coop all cleaned out. Now I need to paint it, put the enclosure up, plant some flowers and shrubs to "pretty it up" and build a few more nest boxes. I will post pics when Im done. I should have eggs for sale late this summer :)
