    I have some coming from Meyer tomorrow. Can't wait. The tracking shows that they are pretty close and should be here in the morning. I hope that I can sleep!!
    I ordered them in January. (I asked for this week for them to be shipped.)

    I ordered 2 ee 1gls,1slw,1cuckoo maran, 1 blue cochin and 1bo.
    They came Tues at 1pm the GLW was not doing too good it was teetering and falling over I think it was the heat, It was 90ish here the hotest day in forever and it was the smallest chick. It seems to be doing better I think it has a vision or balace issue it is still a bit off kilter but all the others are fine. I had two with a pasty bum, but they are doing better, though not too fond of the water LOL
    They are so cute! they peep all the time run each other over and hit in a pile!

    I have such a hard time uploading pics here or I would post them.

    I would have psoted soone r by my allergy meds ahve put me to sleep early.
