    At last... little tiny peepers of my own! I am thrilled to have four healthy and thriving chicks and was sad to lose two due to internal injuries received during shipping. Does anyone in Colorado have chicks available for sale? After the heartbreak from shipping injuries, I would prefer to make the drive to get them home safe and sound. Many pictures are sure to follow...

    That sure is a lovely little chick in your avatar...what kind is she? I'm sorry you lost 2 in shipping, that can be hard on the little things. Checking in with your state thread is a good idea. Another way to find some chicks is by using the buy-sell-trade forum (you need 20 posts to use it, but that's easy enough to do). You'll see it listed under the Forum drop down.

    Good luck finding more birds, thanks for joining us!

    Thank you, NorthFLChick! She is an Easter Egger chick. All six chicks that we received have distinctly different markings. Since there are so many combinations that result in Easter Egger chicks, you'd probably have to go to a feed store or hatchery to increase the chances of finding one that looks like her. I plan to make a photographic journal of the four that survived shipping to track what they grow into that I'll post. They've already piled into my arms and fallen asleep when they could have been roaming their brooder, so I'm very pleased that they're living up to the Easter Egger reputation of being extremely sweet.

    Oh, good! Another Easter Egger fan, just like me! They are my flock favorites. Got 5 last year, lost one when she was about 9 or 10 months old, and this year added 4 more. Haven't seen an EE chick the color of the one in your avatar, so I do hope you will post more pics as she gets older!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Hope your remaining chicks thrive and go on to give you many pastel colored eggs. EE's are very popular, and can be any color.

    Thanks, Blooie! I checked out your EEs and they're beautiful! I can't wait to see what plumage my little ones will grow into!
