    Post office called this morning so they are here and settling in. I wasn't quite ready and didn't have newspaper to lay over the wood shavings but they seem to be finding the food anyway.

    I am the proud new Mama to

    4 Buff Orpingtons (1 died on the way)
    5 Rhode Island Reds
    5 Silver Laced Wyandottes
    5 Auracanas
    6 Black Australorps
    and
    1 mystery chick

    I can't stop peeking in on them, keep hearing them peep even when they're not around and want desperately just to hold them and play with them!

    Congrats!
    BTW, I wouldn't put newspaper down on top of their shavings. Newspaper is slippery and its said to contribute to spraddle leg.
    Enjoy your chicks! [​IMG]
