    Well, it appears all is well. We all survived the first night. [​IMG] Sleep was a little rough, though. Every time I got up, "well, might as well go check on the chicks, I'm up anyway" lol......

    LOL that is funny - I am a few weeks away from my "first night" but I know I will be the same way - Hoping the weather gets warmer here so I can get them out in the coop in the next week or two. The brooder in the living room is getting a bit messy these days with 22 gals in there. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] 22 chicks?! Wow..... I just got my 8 yesterday. I'm not ready to start even thinking about putting them outside yet, having them inside and being nervous about how they are doing is enough for me at the moment. [​IMG]

    Way to make it through the first night! I know I am going to be a nervous wreck the first night after mine get here today or tomorrow.... they were shipped yesterday and I am nervous for their travels through the mail to get to me! I know how some boxes can look upon arrival, I hope they handle my chicks better than that!
