Chickens by Mail, Rain By Midweek

For over 30 years we’ve been getting our chickens from Murray McMurray Hatchery in Webster City, Iowa. They ship day-old chicks in a ventilated flat box and you pick up this peeping package at your post office. McMurray has been in business for 95 years and their breeds are excellent.

   We get excited looking at the new catalog each year. They also have ducks, turkeys, pheasants, and quail. (Oh how I wish we had more than a half-acre!) We’ve gone through many breeds over the years and have now settled on bantams.

IN FACT, IF THE GFS VERIFIES…PORTIONS OF OUR FORECAST AREA COULD SEE SOME VERY SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY…” https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=MTR&product=AFD&
