    New feeder and waterer, a layer of pine shavings covered with paper towels, a new heat lamp bulb, the PO notified.......and OMG!!!!! My babies ship in the morning! I will start holding my breath in the morning and will, most likely, not take a breath until they arrive safe and sound. Wish me luck!!!!

    My hubby is excited, too, but that is because this order includes HIS dream chickies!!! [​IMG] He emailed a bit ago to ask how long he has before I will force him to have them named! LOL These things take him time. [​IMG]

    I am getting
    2 Barred Holland (these go to my mother)
    4 female 1 male La Fleche (these are the hubby dream chickies)
    3 Ancona (2 for my mother 1 for me)
    2 Buff Minorca (my mother)
    2 Naked Neck
    1 Porcelain Dutch Bantam
    1 Self Blue Silkie Bantam
    2 White Silkie Bantam
    2 White Crested Black Polish Bantam

    And I am assuming there will be some packing peanuts since there aren't 25 chicks ordered. [​IMG]

    Sounds like a good mix you are getting, Coloradochick!!!!!!!
