    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. [​IMG]

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

    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

    Oh this makes me want chicks BAD! And I won't even get the eggs to put in the incubator until later this week.
