In the Brooder
- Jul 31, 2011
Hatched on the 23'd in Cameron,TX (Ideal) and arrived this a.m. at our small town Ohio post office at 4! Meet my chicks . . . 4 Barred Rock pullets, 8 White Rock Pullets and 2 teenie lil' silver laced Cochin bantiesThey are all super healthy and vibrant! Very busy little babies. I am very impressed with the 100% live shipment. Took a couple tries to get the heat lamp adjusted right, but got it perfect for them this evening and they are laying spread appart under it's glow, resting peacefully! All of them ate and drank vigorously and even got in some play fighting (those little banties have NO fear!) My two children were beyond excited. The 3 yr. old wanted to sleep in the garage with them! Overall, super pleased with our first chick experience! Wish us luck growing these little bundles!
