Mailorder Chicks

Ordering chicks at the end of the month. Just trying to decide on which ones.

We want some flock diversity and right now it is just the seven Australorp hens.

Murray McMurray Hatchery has some nice birds at good rates.

I think we might go with fifty of their "Rainbow Layers" as well as another dozen or so of something else that should lay well.

We're splitting the birds with the neighbor so hopefully that'll help on shipping.
