    Just wanted to show off my new babies... after 2 days of worrying all the babies came in safe and sound.
    Since chicken math plays a big factor... I am hoping I can get some barred rocks before they are old enough to count that I have chickens [​IMG]

    They were absolutely exhausted!!!!

    And... last but not least our almost 2 week old Partridge Rock and New Hampshire not being able to stand it and flying up to take a look (now it is time for a top cover)

    Aww! They are so cute! We have some 6 week old silkies and two week old Cochins. The silkies are so freaky looking right now with half fuzz and half feather! I would get them a mirror but they would be scared!! They are so fun! Enjoy! [​IMG]

    I will say... I am loving the little polish personalities already... they just look up at you and peep.... makes my heart melt. [​IMG]

    I teach school.... and had a field study today [​IMG] so I didn't get to spend time with the during the day.... but a fellow teacher is hatching eggs for her students (special ed) and they got to babysit today... when I got back they all fussed at me and asked if they could stay until the end of the day. I was advised to count my chicks before I left for the day as some could have been sneaked out... LOL...

    Got all 18 of them home.... [​IMG]

    Purchased them through Cackle... ordered 5 of each and they sent 6 of each.

    Sadly, we lost one polish [​IMG] Don't know why, but everyone else seems to be doing fine [​IMG]
