    After waiting for what seems like forever, I got a call this morning at 7:30 from the post office!! (I could hear my chicks peeping in the background!) They offered to deliver them before noon, or I could come pick them up... Well that was a no-brainer [​IMG] So, I scoop up the kid put him in the car seat and away we go! I couldn't wait till we got home to open them up, so I cut into the box and got my first glimpse of them, they are so cute!

    They have just gotten to their new home, and the flash on the camera kinda freaked them out a little bit, and you really cant see very well with no flash. (red heat lamps) so the pics are a bit limited for now. I will post more when they get settled in.

    I am a bit concerned that we didn't get exactly what we ordered though. from what I have seen on here, EE's are all chipmunk colored. I ordered 6 ee's (5 pullets and a cockrel) but only 4 of them are chipmunk colored. I don't care really, as long as they are happy [​IMG]

    We will have a Guess the breed game later hehe I am supposed to have the following;

    6 EE's (one being a cockrel)
    2 Buff Orpingtons
    2 Delawares

    I doubt you will be able to pick out any breeds from the pics,... well, the EE's are easy [​IMG]

    On to the pics! *** EDIT *** More pics further down the page, I just cant help it, they are so darn cute! hehe ***

    My son and I (mostly me, son is only 2) just cant stop watching them! they are so funny [​IMG] they are very active and seem to be overjoyed to be out of that tiny little box. all of them are eating and drinking. I checked all of them for the pasty butt, all clear so far.
    they are so soft!
    I don't think I have been this happy since i was a boy hehe

    these are from MPC,
    They are very curious about me, I put my hand in the brooder and they all come up to check me out. 2 of the ee's even jumped in my hand and let me play with them already [​IMG]

    Sorry for all the posts, but I am just thrilled with the little puff balls hehe

    I have 6 of them that are yellow, and 4 with chipmunk markings... remember, supposed to have 6 ee's, 2 Delawares, and 2 buff orpingtons.


    This is an ee, she tried to get in all the pictures [​IMG]

    Here is one of the yellow ones, I don't know if its a Buff Orpington, or a Delaware.. but she sure liked chasing the strap on the camera [​IMG]
