    Picked up my first ever chicks this morning. They are all drinking, eating, pooping, sleeping and cheeping! So far so good. I have 18 meaties, 1 each of RIR, Blk Astro, BO, GLW, Drk Brahma, BR, Red Sexlink and Speckled Sussex. Can't tell some of them apart but will try after they take a good nap after their long trip. Bought them from Welp Hatchery. (one additional added) From the looks of things, they may end up out in the bigger brooder sooner than I expected. I'll add pics later after the nap!

    I just got my chicks from Welp today in the mail. I too am VERY impressed with my order. Plus I got extra chicks too [​IMG] Too bad I can't con my husband into thinking that Welp "accidently/purposely added 20 extra chicks to my order.

    Quote:Yes I do love those fuzzy little butts. They have all settled in very well by now. I did go ahead and seperate the meaties from the little "girls". Didn't want them to be over crowded.
    The girls have really taken to the nipple waterer and my Lhasa Apso has taken up residence outside the brooder. Watching them carefully. Soooooo.... cute!

    I'm sorry, we cannot validate that you have cute fuzzy butts until you post PICTURES! [​IMG]
