    Hey All,

    My new babies arrived yesterday in good health from Ideal. I even got 2 extra boys. They funny thing is they are quite happy with 80-/85 degrees in the tub they are in and they are eating like there is no tomorrow. They are 2 days old now and eating and chirping like little pigs. They love fermented feed, if only the chick starter didn't smell so bad. My developer smells like fresh sourdough bread, but the starter smells worse. Its not spoiled, it just stinks. I mixed up a second batch separately to be sure. Oh well the chicklets love the stuff. See pic below. 13 little peanuts.
