    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Congrats on the soon to be new chicks! I hope they all arrive safely. Make sure to have the brooder all ready and you might call the PO to warn them they are coming so they can call you the moment they get there.

    Dip everybody's beaks in the water and don't feed for about 15 or so minutes. Let everybody get hydrated first. This helps to prevent pasty butt.

    Here is a nice article from our learning center on raising your new babies for the first 2 months...https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/...ks-the-first-60-days-of-raising-baby-chickens

    Enjoy your new babies and welcome to our flock!
