I ordered some babies from Ideal and they arrived today. Everyone is alive. I ordered 4 barred rocks, 4 buff orps and 3 silver laced wyandottes. They included 13 packing peanuts. They are dark red colored chicks that I am guessing are RIRs. One of my BRs seems to be sprattle legged. She (or he I ordered 1 roo of each breed) is sitting with one leg off to the side. If I get the leg up under her she will stand, but when she goes to walk the leg goes back out the side. She ends up having to drag herself around. I'm going to do a search on the message boards here and see what I can do about it. Otherwise everyone is healthy and loud lol. They are all eating just fine. I'm still working on getting everyone to drink water. I have them in my bedroom now because everywhere else is the house is something that won't leave them alone (dogs, cat, 2 year old). I wanted them on the floor next to my computer desk so I could actively watch them, but the computer is in the "play room" where my son hangs out, so that won't work. I just have to go back to the bedroom to check on them periodically. I'm so excited about them lol. They shipped out yesterday and I got a call at 10am to come get them. I was expecting them tomorrow, but I read on here of other getting them the next day, so I made sure to have the brooder ready. Glad I did. The only think I wish I had done was order 25 so that I wouldn't have 13 packing peanuts to deal with. If I had thought it through I would have done that.
