    Gosh, after reading so many horror stories I was convinced that when I got my 15 chicks, half would be dead. So I was pretty surprised when I picked them up at the post office and ALL of them were alive and WILD!

    One had a broken toe, but I'm sure that happened during shipping. It was taped up to heal straight. While I was doing that, the chicks learned to eat and drink all on their own! They were hoovering everything in sight before I even got back to them. The one with the broken toe, now has a straight toe and everyone is healthy and very much alive. I'll definitely be ordering from Meyer again [​IMG]

    Oh, and my package was sent out on Monday, and it arrived on Wednesday. (Last week)

    1 Barred Rock Female
    1 Salmon Faverolle Female
    1 Golden Spangled Hamburg Females
    1 Buff Orpington Female
    1 Blue Cochin Standard Female
    2 Light Brown Leghorn Female
    2 Speckled Sussex Females
    2 Silver Laced Wyandotte Female
    2 Golden Laced Wyandotte Female
    2 Welsummer Female

    With my lone turkey that hatched out the day before. You can't see it, but she has a chick sleeping between her legs. She's at the very back napping:

    And Diva, the chick that rightfully earned her name the first day:
