THEY ARRIVED! Sorry for the late update, but the chicks arrived on April 18th. They hatched a day early, and took 2 days to get here. The postage on the box said Priority Mail, but maybe the postal workers knew they were chicks so they rushed it through. I was really surprised when I got the call on the 18th. I had to rush home to get the brooder light turned on and food/water set up before I went to get them. One died during travel, and another died 2 days ago(lost one Gold-Laced and one Mottled).
Love your photos/videos!!! Here are a few photos and a video of my new babies:
