    Our brand new chickies arrived yesterday. I am in love! They are 6 EE "females" from McMurray. All seem healthy - eating, drinking, pooping, scratching, etc. I really hope they all turn out to be females because we live a few houses down from our local borough municipal building and chickens aren't exactly legal here ;-)

    Congrats! I used the same naming convention when I got mine... Annie, Beethoven, Cara, etc. :)

    Look forward to seeing them grow up!

    We named one of our EEs Fern too. The EEs are the most inquisitive, friendly and sweet of ours. [​IMG]

    there lovely congrats.
    just curious how do you get them to stay still and be so friendly. my first time with babie chicks and mum is raising them but i want to beable to hold them so i can keep an eye onthere health as they grow up . i was not able to do that with mum as i got her as an adult and can never catch her !!!

    Sooo cute! And it's amazing how they grow up to look totally different! It's so much fun watching them grow.
