    So sorry to hear Ray is not well. I think 10+ is pretty old for a chicken but it's never easy to loose one.

    The three silvers that survived from the order ChickNmamma and I got from John Blehm appear to be a trio, YAY. It will be interesting to compare them with yours. Very pretty 8 week old chicks right now, they are smaller than the lav. splits I have that are same age. I anxiously await your hatch!

    For Barbara [​IMG]. You have given Ray a happy life and I'm sure that he appreciates it. Not many roosters get to live that long. I know it is so sad to say good bye to a loved pet.

    Was there a discussion on here about picking up chicks at a distribution center? Refresh my memory, please.

    There have been too many cute pictures to multi quote.

    Debi, I still have trouble believing you are a grandmother, you look too young!

    Loved that apron!

    I adore several of Deb's birds, but have to say that black bare butt chick is an exception!

    IF you get the tracking number and can get ahold of a Postmaster they can tell you exactly where the shipment is. You then go to the Distribution center and get the chicks. USPS has changed the name of the centers. Their website has contact information for each center so you should call ahead to let them know you are coming.

    Do you have a shipment coming from Missouri?

    Thanks for all the the thoughts about old Ray...I really had no idea how long a rooster lives and it is good to know his life has been long. I will be roosterless and I don't want to be. Now don't you all start bringing me your extras yet but there is a chance I may have room for a couple.

    I have purchased bubble wrap on eBay from the following 2 sellers:

    http://stores.ebay.com/UPAKNSHIP

    http://stores.ebay.com/AAABOXMAN-HOUSTON-TEXAS

    The first seller is in California and has very quick shipping. The second one is in Texas and also ships quickly. I have purchased shipping supplies from both of them multiple times and been very pleased with both service & product.

    Kim, [​IMG] I love you! You made my day! I actually have 4 grandkids and these are the 2 youngest. They are 2, 4, 6, and 8 years old. I just started watching the 2 youngest ones 16 days out of the month. I sure feel my age at the end of a 12 hour day with them!
