    They're adorable, healthy and active. I don't know why I worried so much about getting chicks in the mail.

    Probably because the post office can do horrible things to shipped chicks and eggs.. but I'm glad your little fuzzbutts arrived safe and sound. Let's see some pictures!

    Jealous x2! I am still waiting for my 15 chicks from Meyer. They were shipped Monday and haven't arrived in MD yet. Ah well, tomorrow is another day.

    Yes, me wants to see pictures of yours too! 3 of my pending ones are Welsummers too.

    I have a Wellie from MPC. She's a character.

    FBS, I got an order of chicks from Meyer today, they hatched Monday, and I'm in MD - Eastern Shore. Hope yours come tomorrow AM.

    jmtcmkb - One of the reasons I picked MPC as opposed to another hatchery is that I thought they came from CT, turns out their hatchery is in OH. The babies hatched yesterday and were to me at noon today, not bad at all.

    I wish I could post pics, I"m challenged in that way. [​IMG] Don't you need to have a photobucket account or the like, or can you post pics from your cell phone?

    Quote:That is exactly why I chose them as well, plus I could order less than 20+ chicks!
