    I'm just a little excited. My first order of chicks comes this week. [​IMG] My sweet DH ordered a few chicks for me from My Pet Chicken for Valentines Day and they are being shipped out tomorrow! I have all girls coming, 1 Easter Egger Bantam, 1 Welsummer Bantam, 1 Rare Marans, 1 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, and 2 Feather Legged Bantams! This is just the beginning, next week I have two orders coming in one from Ideal (which has 51 chicks, 2 ducklings, and 2 goslings) one from Mt. Healthy (which has 15 chicks). I can't wait!!! Any one else expecting any chicks this week!?

    And I'll definately post pics when they arrive!

    Question! What are you going to feed your chicks when they get here? Are you buying a premixed feed or mixing your own?

    No early call this morning, hopefully I have my peeps by tomorrow. I have the brooder all set up and ready! When my DH came home from work yesterday and saw it all set up he thought they already came and seemed a little disapointed. And he says he's not into the chickens [​IMG]

    No early call again this morning. I really do hope they come today, now I'm starting to worry.

    Did MPC give you a hatch/ship day? I've only ordered from a hatchery twice (McMurray and Ideal) and both times my chicks hatched and were shipped on a Wednesday and I got them Friday morning....the last couple of days before you actually get your babies is absolute torture!

    Just called MPC, they were soooo helpful they tracked my chicks (they said they were shipped yesterday instead of Tuesday) and they are on their way to my PO right now! So I called my PO just to give them a heads up and give them my number so they will call me the instant they get in! I cannot wait!

    Ok, just got back from the PO and got my little chickies! I got 6 cute little fuzzies! Two aren't looking to hot, but keeping my fingers crossed [​IMG] . And one has a little crossbeak, but she is definately the perkiest of the bunch!! I called MPC, to let them know about the two sluggish ones and the one crossbeak. They were so nice and helpful, the already refunded me for the crossbeak and I'll have to let them know how the other two make out eventually.
    So as promised pics of my chicks!
    My six piece nuggets [​IMG]
    My either White or Blue Splash Marans (leaning towards White), this is my youngest daughters favorite.
    This is my Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, my oldest daughters favorite
    This is the Bantam Welsummer, so tiny but very lively
    Next is the one I'm really worried about, my Easter Egger Bantam
    And lastly I chose 2 feather legged bantams and got 2 SILKIES!!!! I believe one white or splash and one blue! (The blue has the crossbeak)
