Hello all,
Newbie here, just posted under the newbie thread, but I am so excited I wanted to share even more:weee My babies came today!!! I ordered 5 EE pullets from cackle hatchery on the city pullet special, and they are so stinkin cute!

All 5 seem to be doing well, 4 were eating and drinking right away, one is taking a little longer but seems perky and alert. I am very please that I recieved a variety of colors, all are different! One is reddish and brown, one is black + grey, one looks like a chipmunk, one is yellow, and one is yellow and brown with little freckles on its head. My family thinks I'm crazy and can't understand what the big deal is...lol. So i needed to share with others who GET-IT...

I can't wait to take some pictures and post them to share. Hoping to chat with others here and learn all about raising chickens. I'm sure I'll have many questions in the coming weeks. IT"S A GREAT DAY!!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome...It's been a fun day getting to know my new babies. I did post some pictures in another thread. ( I am way out in Western MA, on the Williamstown-North Adams line, about 6 miles south of the vermont border)

Again Thanks for the welcome!!
