    My phone rang at 6am thurs morning and over some very loud chirping, I was able to hear the post office say that my babies had arrived.
    It was pouring down rain and soooo cold, so I heated up the truck and turned the seat heaters on and was off to get them.
    I had turned the brooder lights on the night before to get it warm enough should they happen to come thurs. I'm so glad I did. Our night temps here have been in the upper 30's.
    They shipped 28 chicks, 2 were dead in the box and one died yesterday. The rest are very active and seem healthy, so far!
    I hope these pics work, I am terrible at taking pics.
    I have no idea what they are yet, doesn't really matter they are so cute!

    Thanks so much!
    Today is my first day off since I got them, I haven't gotten any house work done. I have spent all day in the coop. They are so much fun to watch. I had forgotten how cute they are.
