We've got fresh milk; don't fresh eggs sound good? I ordered 14 Barred Rock chicks from Ideal Poultry - 12 females, 2 males. We put them under a lamp in the laundry room, and they are growing fast. The kids have really enjoyed them. They are getting their feathers and will be ready to move outdoors pretty soon (it's probably hotter outside than under my lamp now anyway!).
