    I was hoping my chicks from Ideal would be here this morning, and I got em!

    I live across the street from the post office, and kept watching out the window to see if the mail truck had arrived. Sure enough I saw him carefully carrying in a box that looked just the right size. So I immediately went across and asked if my baby chicks had come. Yes!

    All 30 arrived safe and sound, all are drinking water and have lots of energy. I could barely pull myself away from them long enough to come in and post pictures.

    I am now a chicken owner! WOOHOO! Now off to figure out who's who.

    They all look so good! What an exciting day for you. They didn't have to wait at the post office long that's for sure. Good Luck!
