    Hello everyone :frow,
    Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Julianna (not Stan ;)). I am expecting 8 chicks to arrive from MPC within the next couple of days, they hatched this morning and were out for shipment as of 11 am ... I'm pretty nervous as I haven't received any tracking updates since then :confused:. These will be my first chicks.

    So far all of my questions have been answered by a quick search of the forums, or through a quick Google search (although most of those direct me here too :)). I'm quite sure I'll have tons more questions after they arrive as I'm new to chicken keeping. I'm also sure I'll be super excited to post some pictures of my new babies:ya!

    I look forward to learning from everyone here.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I ordered:

    3 Easter Eggers (one blue, one white, and one ??)
    1 Cream Legbar
    1 Black Australorp
    1 Buff Orpington
    1 Buckeye and
    1 Blue Favucana

    I really wanted to be able to tell everyone apart. Hopefully I can figure out who's who when they get here :).
