    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![​IMG] 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 So i needed to share with others who GET-IT...[​IMG] 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!!

    2 shelties, one malchi, and five baby EE
