Waiting on a McMurray order of chicks....worried - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Time to stop lurking and make a post. I had 17 chicks shipped Monday from McMurray, they arrived Wednesday and are doing great. Couldn't be happier with how healthy and active they are.
Got quite the assortment: barred rock, RI Red, sex link, americauna, Sussex and Wyandotte. Best of luck to everyone waiting on new chicks!

My chicks showed up this morning.  Ordered 32, received 33 from McMurray and all are doing well. Honestly, I was expecting a few to be weak or even one or two doa (was hoping not but was prepared) and to my surprise, everyone was alive.

 

Brought them to the brooder that I had all ready and provided a nice mix of warm water with sure and nutri-drench in it and scattered chick crumbles on the paper towels around them and they all went to town.  I had to leave them to go to work and they are still doing great this evening when I got back to them.

All of the survivors are doing fantastic this evening. I laid the one with the bum leg to rest this afternoon because it was freaking out my 2 year old. She's very sentimental and saw the others picking at her. I knew she wouldn't make it through the night so no sense in prolonging the agony. :-( so we ordered 25, got 27 lost 3 and are left with 24 to divide with our neighbor. So much fun. And McMurray put a credit on our account so now to go shopping again :-)
