    I picked up my new chicks this morning at 6 AM at my local post office annex. I can tell you I was really worried since they had hatched on Saturday and were 24 hours late.
    Got them home and started to unpack and the little fellers were just fine, but glad to be out of their box.
    Kudos to Murray McMurray for a wonderful new flock of babies.
    8 Australorps; 8 Buff Orpingtons, 8 Light Brahmas and 8 S-L Wyandottes plus...
    16 Red Sex Link Males for warmth...48 total and I only ordered 32 chicks...
    Only one DOA...can't tell if it was a Buff or one of the cockerels.
    Will post pictures tomorrow.
