    I have 22 chicks now. The post office called at around 8:30 this morning and said our chicks were there! We have 7 porcelain d'Uccles,5 mille fluer d'Uccles,5 easter eggers,and 5 silver laced wyandottes. There really funny and all are running around all crazy. We have a water dish in there and they jump around in it, getting themselves wet and making water go everywhere!We got them from Cackle hatchery and all are alive and healthy, well besides one but its kinda getting better.
    Here are a few pictures:

    Aww they are adorable! I was super excited when mine came [​IMG]. Did you put electrolytes in their water? Mine were dehydrated and I lost two of them because of it [​IMG]. If you haven't I would give them some boiled egg yolks and put some unflavored pedialyte in their water or other electrolytes. If any of them look slow and lethargic that's a good sign. Enjoy them! I hope they are all doing good!
