    Yes it will be a treat for me. I'm so excited and hope they do well. I ordered them from Ideal.

    Also from Texas (DFW). Got my first batch of Light Brahmas in July, so I know how you feel. I worried over them like any good "mother hen", and now that they are well established, I spend time with them each evening after work (before it gets dark), and get a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment from watching them. They have come to expect me to have something for them, so they gather around and when I sit down, some will climb up into my lap, checking to see what I may have in my hands to eat. The personalities are coming out now. Small flock of only 9 birds. Lost a couple early on, but all are happy and healthy now. Good luck and ENJOY !
