    Feed store called Thursday - - -

    My special order chicks are in. I ordered 2 partridge rocks and 2 speckled sussex pullets. I picked them up yeseterday and they seem to be doing just fine.

    It was so funny, , , , they didn't know which chicks were mine. They had to go look in the catalogue to see what the chicks should look like [​IMG]

    SCARRY, I hope I got what I was suppose to ! ! !

    [​IMG] I'd say you'd love your two new chicks no matter what type of chicken they grow to be! I had wanted Buff Orpingtons, but the only chicks available last June were Black Australorps. And I just LOVE my chickie- CHICK!( she's now a mom of 3 little OEG mixed biddies )

    There is plenty of chicken love to go around - - - but these two breeds were the last on my "gotta try them" list.
     
  4. I love those breeds, so beautiful. [​IMG] Have fun with your babies!

    They have done nothing but sleep that last 24 hours. They get up eat and drink and then go sleep.

    Is this normal ?

    If it because of the stress from shipping ?
