    These cuties arrived yesterday from www.mypetchicken.com. They are so fluffy and were in much better shape (very spunky and sweet) than I expected for newly hatched chicks who just made a journey across the country.

    Three Rhode Island Reds and two Barred Plymouth Rocks.

    CUTE! Looks like we share a similar brooder! I have 5 RIR's and 5 BPR's in my brooder! The barred rocks are super friendly! [​IMG]

    We got them yesterday and already this morning I would swear they've grown a noticeable amount.

    Quote:I thought so too. I don't know what I was expecting exactly, probably the worst since I had visions of a dead chick or two. They seemed completely unphased by their trip.
