    Sleepy babies

    I love how the little Welsh Harlequin girl is just CRASHED (upper left). She just collapsed.

    Everyone is soooo sleepy. This only lasted about 5 minutes, though, then they were up and running like crazy birds again. From left to right: Blue Swedish, a seriously asleep Welsh Harlequin, a Khaki Campbell, and a Cayuga. All girls, all adorable.

    The Cayuga is an enthusiastic little duck, I think she's going to be in charge. She took it upon herself to attack the giant hand in the brooder, and she's beating up on all of her sisters. Bitey!

    Videos to come as soon as they get uploaded to YouTube.

    Me too! I was so worried about them.

    I got to the post office and the woman there met me out in the parking lot as soon as I pulled in. She wanted to make sure I got those babies home safe and sound!

    Thanks!

    They all seem to be really healthy, which makes me happy.

    INORITE??? I keep needing to leave the room because it's too hot, but I have to go right back in to look at the adorableness. I have about a million meetings today for this new website I'm designing, so I can't be here all day and it's killing me.

    Tomorrow, I break out the good camera and take some posed pics. How long can they be out of the brooder without getting too chilled? Five minutes? Fifteen? It'll be around 70 in the house when I take them out.
