Adding to the Flock
I added 53 more baby chicks to add to my flock, 3 roosters, and 50 more pullets. These chicks were ordered from Ideal Poultry in Cameron, TX. I really like this hatchery. Anytime I have ever had any problems with my shipment, they quickly found a solution. If some chicks arrived dead or under the weather, they would ship replacements out on the next shipping date. Since I am in TX, all orders are delivered in one day. This is extremely important for day-old poultry. Upon hatching, they eat the yolk sack. This will provide nutrients for the first few days of the chicks life. Anyway, these pullets are a mix of assorted varieties. I am interested to see which breeds I end up with, I know that I have a few Buff Orpingtons in there. I got a few roosters so I should never have to purchase day-old chicks again.
