It feels like Christmas eve & my family is convinced that I have completely lost my mind!!! Just they wait till they see those little fuzz butts! They will be just as hooked as I have become, all in thanks to the great people here on BYC who post such cute pics!

    It does feel like christmas eve!!! We got our girls from MPC last week and they are awesome... healthy, active, curious. You are going to have a blast. How many did you order and what breeds? Is your brooder all set up and ready to go?

    Have a blast. They are so exciting to watch playing around. Enjoy.

    MPC must be really busy! I have 15 various chicks coming this week too... I hope they all survive the trip north.

    Quote:We got 2 EE and 2 Barred Rocks. They are so stinkin' cute. I was hoping they'd ship on Monday and be here on Tuesday but we didn't actually get them until Wednesday. Still, they were healthy and not particularly stressed when they arrived. So fun!!!

    I really really hoped they would come today, but no such luck!!! & I got like zero sleep last night too!!! I kept thinking that the phone rang & I didn't hear it, so I'd sit up & check my phone & no calls! UGH!! Then I dreamt that they all died......[​IMG]
    So heres to hoping that they come tmrw!!! At least I can work on painting the coop today! [​IMG]
