Thanks! I'm excited to be a BYC member... there's so much great information here!
Welcome to BYC, Jenn
There's a "Colorado" thread on here if you want to touch base with us all at once ...
And howdy, neighbor I will for sure have chicks this spring, but the only purebreds I'll have are Silver Spangled Hamburgs. I'll have so.e Black Australorp/Blue Andalusian crosses and Splash silkies too
I am so nervous when it comes to shipping chicks, so I don't blame you for looking closer to home, and you'll meet some great people at local swaps
Thanks, shortgrass! The Colorado thread is sure to be helpful. I'm glad we're neighbors... I love Colorado!
Here are the four EEs that survived shipping
Chili - The leader of the pack... a bold and fearless risk taker as well as the peacekeeper of the bunch
Curry - Sweet and mellow with occassional fits of get up and go, go, go
Cayenne - The fiery instigator... Chili works hard to keep her in line
Saffron - The 1st to cuddle up & fall asleep on us whenever the girls are out... her wispy fuzz reminds us of her namesake
Thanks to everyone who suggested the Colorado thread to help find chicks this time of year that I could drive to and avoid further losses to shipping. I was able to find two fantastic and very personable Olive Egger chicks to replace the two lost in our shipment of Easter Eggers. Enormous thanks to Coleen and Dan for their warmth and a great tour of Honeybadger Farms. Here are the two new girls:
Basil - an incredible lovie... she was hopping up on my lap and snuggling into my hands as soon as she was out of the brooder
Fennel - she may be smaller, but her peep is MUCH bigger
Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC.
The EEs at one week old:
Chili - constantly being on the go makes it hard to get a clear picture of her
Curry - currently leading the way in pin feather growth
Cayenne - our resident ball of fluff... she may be the smallest and be showing the least pin feather growth, but she's one of the fist to pick up on something new
Saffron - pretty sure she's got a cover of Chick Monthly in her sights... she poses for the camera even though she shows the least ego and has the mellowest personality of the bunch
For some reason, I haven't been able to view any of your pictures. Is everyone else seeing them ok?
I can't see them either, NFC...just a little photo square and the words Displaying image whateverthenumberis.
Thanks @Blooie glad it's not just me.
