Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted! I've been busy, busy, busy and tired!
Today I have some quick, exciting news to share...My Pet Chicken often posts emergency adoptions on their Facebook page for chicks that were ordered by someone who has cancelled their order. Today, there was an adoption post for 10 assorted, sexed, female Silkie chicks. The original order was $150+ dollars; however, since I won the adoption for these ladies, I'll pay only $70 (including the shipping). I've been contemplating adding to my Silkie flock and this sealed the deal for me. Knowing I'll be getting females made it even easier. I've told Travis that he's already taken care of both my birthday and Christmas presents for this year (thanks dear)!
If you ever want to start a flock, checking for these last-minute adoption deals from MPC is a great way to save. Usually they discount these orders by 50%. Find them on Facebook here. Just be sure you've got a brooder set up and ready to go! Check out my Brooder Basics post for great tips on getting started!
