    I ordered 9 chicks from Meyer Hatchery about a month and a half ago (September 18th) and today was the hatch date and... Well... I just got an email about half an hour ago (it's 12:24pm here so noon) saying they shipped!!

    THEY SHIPPED THEY SHIPPED THEY SHIPPED!!!!! :D

    I'm so excited haha

    It's so exciting, isn't it?! Make sure you post pictures for us when they come! It's hard to wait for them to get there!

    Apparently there's a message on the answering machine that the chicks are in but I thought the number said FL ao i didn't answer so it's probably from an hour or two ago i feel so bad omg i hope they're alive. We don't even have a spot ready. I'm so scared

    Chickies. One I was holding keeps throwing head back and a teeny less active so worried but under MHP now and will add second waterer with vita pack later. hopefully she pulls through. Still peeping though so idk. Hoping I didn't hurt her dipping their beaks in.

    You have a nice little flock there! They are very fragile so just be careful handling them.

    Oooohhhhh that's a brilliant idea!!!

    Also tried to take pics and after maybe third chick they all came running out and I lost track LOL

    AND they started coming to here chick chick, some before food then more when i put food in my hand but besides the first chick they didn't even want the food (well chick was covering it), it was more just hey everyone is over here. Except two porkies kept eating over there lol but then even when i put the food back they wrre al running over, climbing all over me, wanting to be held, very vibrant little chick. And the little disabled one is so friendly and cute. She just comes and stands near and will tilt her head back and sometimes stumble backwards and the poor thing almost falls over then but usually catches herself and straightens her head before she does. But she just comes and stares up with the tiltef back head. It's so cute but so sad. No clue what could cause it but she tries to eat amd peeps loud. Very vibrant just not crazy running around and the tilted head. . Hope she pulls through.
