    All right, oooo still so excited [​IMG] I am now the happy owner of Black Australorps Barred Rocks and Light Bramahas. I had one little guy that didnt make it, and I had to wait (after they called me at 7:30am) outside the Post Office for them to open at 9am and then they opened late. (Imagine cat in heat clawing at the door.) [​IMG]


    But that didnt get my spirits down too much, now I have a nice little flock and I'M SO EXCITED. I can't really tell the difference between the BR and the BA. In the process of taking pictures!!

    Barred rocks should have a white dot in their head. [​IMG] Or mine always did.

    Our post office has a button to ring the workers in back so you can pick up stuff before they open. Anyway, I'm plumb tickled for you! Daggone, this getting chicks in the mail is like early Christmas every time!

    They're coming! I uploaded them on flickr.

    It IS Christmas, you shouldve seen me at the feed store yesterday!

    What kind of chicks did you order?
