Well, the time has finally arrived. Tomorrow or Friday my new 25 lil babies will arrive without incident I hope. Since my digital camera decided to mis-behave the first, second and third time around, I'm hoping beyond hope that the fourth time is a charm. It saw the camera doctor and got a clean bill of health and some nice new batteries that it says it likes very much. I had wanted to do a "baby book" sort of thread since the get go, but it never turned out as planned. I feel like the "educated by life experience" adult now having her second chance at parenthood. Wiser with a lot more knowledge. So as I set up the brooder box AGAIN, I shall do it with a self assured attitude based with the information that I have learned here at BYC. I am really hoping that they come in the morning since I am off tomorrow. Otherwise, I will only get to visit with them for about 30 min. before I have to go to work on Friday. My kids will be home though since today is their last day of school for summer break. They know how to care and tend to the lil babies. That at least calms many fears. Since the introduction of the babies is in this first one, I am hoping that tomorrow I will be placing my first photo's of the new family members. We are expecting in groups of fives the following breeds: Silver Spitzhauben's, Assorted feathered legged, Assorted Cochin's, Salmon Fav's and Crested Black Polish. Keeping those fingers crossed for the straight run on the Polish. Well, until tomorrow or Friday I hope everyone has a great day and hug all your babies!
