Photos of my chicks from Ideal.

I ordered 4 Polish bantams, but two died in shipment. One was critical - I thought it was dead until it twitched. After a lot of ICU care, it seems to have pulled through.

This is one of the Polish chicks, photogenic 'lil things.

A veeeewy sweeeepy Faverolles chick, on the verge of collapse (which it eventually did).

An Ameraucana, my fav chick. She's very inquisitive and sweet.

A Delaware and a Faverolles standing together, note the fuzzy legs on the Fav.

Oops, conked out.

Ooops, conked out again.

Pecking at something on the cardboard, it takes a committee to figure out what is going on.

Back awake - for now.

The Ameraucanas, Delawares and Faverolles seem to have come through shipping well, though I do have one Faverolles who is still too sluggish. She is getting her beak dipped in Pedialyte and water, I hope she decides to get up and start eating.

They are definitely resting more on day 2 than they did on day 1.

Cheers,
Michelle

Thanks for posting those pics Michelle. I'm having a hard time waiting for mine and all the cute little baby pics help a little.
