    The PO called me before 7am to let me know my shipment of chicks had arrived. As soon as I opened the door at the PO office, I could hear them!!!!!
    All are very active and LOUD!!! Everyone is eating and drinking. One of the GLW seems to have a problem with it's leg but we will see how that goes. They were packed pretty tight to keep them warm, maybe with room and exercise, it will correct itself.

    26 GLW
    12 gold seabrights

    Mine were loud too! One of them even pecked at anothers toe, got a hold of it and dragged him across the paper towel! I even picked her up to try and make her let go and she held on for dear life to that poor little toe! The chick whose toe it was was peepin like crazy!
