    I did my research, I have been preparing for weeks...and they have finally arrived! My phone rang at 5:19 am, and I was in my car by 5:24! What an exciting day!

    I had myself all stressed out because I had been reading about the tragedies that can happen with shipped chicks. I ordered 25, received 27 (1 extra BO and the "rare chick"). All arrived alive!

    Is it cold there? Were they standard size or bantam? I have been so worried, I am sorry about your babies. [​IMG]

    Are you putting any additives in the water?

    I mixed up some Sav-A-Chick for them. The nipple waterer has regular water, but the regular waterer has the Sav-A-Chick in it. There is one that seems to be struggling, so I went ahead and mixed some.
