    Well the PO finally called me at 4:25 CST! I got down there as soon as possible!

    I ordered 25 EE's from MPC and I got 26! I was really hoping for 1 or 2 extra!

    Here are some pics right after I put them in the brooder. They huddled under the lamp for about 10 min., now they are all over the brooder, eating and drinking well.

    SO CUTE!!! One is even sitting on the little roost.

    They looked like the same colors stick together a little.

    Nice BIG brooder you got there. Plenty of room for them to grow.

    Keep the pictures coming. It would be nice to see what colors they change to.

    Enjoy!!

    I used my kids outdoor play yard and I have the light hanging from a hook in the garage ceiling. Makes it easy to raise and lower to maintain temp.

    SO CUTE!!! One is even sitting on the little roost.

    I had a few of them sleeping on it last night!

    Keep the pictures coming. It would be nice to see what colors they change to.

    A couple of the blond chicks have white wing feathers coming in, so I'm thinking I have a few white ones. I'm really anxious to see what colors the two silver and black ones will turn out to be!​
