First two hens on order!

Today I ordered the first two of my three hens!

I've ordered two rare breeds, and I'm hoping to get them point of lay in March. Problem is, one of the breeds isn't laying at the moment, and the supplier has only one 8 week old chick. They think she's a she, but won't be sure until s/he reaches 16 weeks or so. I'll therefore know at the end of January whether or not I'll be having chooks in March, or whether it'll be much later in the year.

I'm going to delay ordering my third (hybrid) hen until I know the situation with this one.
