    I am so excited! My chicks were promised by tomorrow from MPC and we got them TODAY! 7 chicks, all perfect! We were worried about the heat wave but they all started eating and drinking right away. One each of the following girls: easter egger, austrolorp, buff orpington, silver pencilled wyandotte, golden laced wyandotte, white silkie, plus one partridge silkie boy. We threw together a brooder last night 'cause it was obvious the coop wasn't going to be ready, and there is now a ring of chairs around it, with my children and others enjoying the total cuteness!

    Here are pics!

    I will take pictures as soon as I can get the neighbor kids to go home! I am afraid that if they see me picking them up, they will pick them up too without supervision!

    Your chicks are so cute, and those are really great pictures too. I especially like the colored backgrounds. [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] Just out of sight of the camera lens, I had one of my kids ready to grab them if they decided to go off of the table! I also took several pics of each one and deleted the blurry ones.
