    Hello,
    I'm located in East Central Illinois and just got my first chicks! I received 5 chicks in the mail (Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, Black Australorp, and two Easter Eggers) and got two from a local source (White Crested Blue Polish (hopefully- could be a WC Black) and Araucana). All seven chicks have been happy in their brooder and have been eating and drinking well. [​IMG]

    My dog is very excited about the peeping coming from the garage.
