    [​IMG] I'm soooo happy! I woke up at 6 this morning and got upset because the post office didn't call me at 5 like they said they would [​IMG] That got me thinking, WHERE ARE THEY!!!

    So I drive the 4 miles to the po and knock on the door...nothing...bang on the door........nothing.......kick the door and scream "Y'all got chicks for Lewis?". "Yeah, hang on I'll get them." [​IMG]

    She comes to the door and all I hear is chirp peep chirp peep peep peeeeeep. She opens one side of the box and says "This ones been dead while it looks like." [​IMG]

    I put them in the car, cover the box with a shirt I found in the backseat and crank up the heat.

    Bring them to their new home, drink of water and then instead of crowding around the heat lamp like expected they go runnin round like crazy lil things. Flappin those silly little things that one day will be wings and eating like I was going to steal it from them.

    Well, enough talk. Here's one picture. I'll get more later.
