hi! i am SO happy all my chicks arrived safely and they were all peeping and ALIVE (thank goodness!) i got the call from my P.O. at 6:37 am and i was there at 7! i swear, they have grown wing feathers in the few hours since they have been here. the kids love them and i cant get enough. this is my first attempt at posting pics so here it goes.... they are: 16 slow growing cornish (for meat - how am i supposed to eat these?!) 2 EE pullets, 2 EE roos, 2 Maran pullets(do not like to be picked up), 1 turken pullet(the cutest!), 1 SF pullet, 2 BO pullets and1 welsummer (i love her). they came from welp - shipped on monday from new mexico and were here today, so not bad transit time. thanks everyone for all the advice i have received and i am sure i will need much more along the way! now, back to my chicks!
