    Chicks shipped off today,so they should be here in the morning I hope.
    If not I have another long day to wait,I can't stand the wait.

    I know how you feel, my ducklings arrived this morning. I was up at 5:15 this morning getting everything ready for them. It will be a miracle if I can sleep tonight without getting up to check on them every 30 minutes....[​IMG]

    If only chicks and duckies weren't so darn cute!

    I didn't sleep for the 2 nights it took my chickens to arrive. I was soooo tired!

    Enjoy the babies!!!! I wish I had some on the way too.

    Mine supposedly hatched and shipped today too.

    How about I'll worry about yours and you worry about mine that way we both might get some sleep?

    I ordered 30 assorted guinea keets.

    I am not quite sure where I'm going to put them either. Have to be that old TV box for the first week I think.
