    Shipped out yesterday from Ideal, arrived today, yay! I really wasn't expecting them til tomorrow, since they came from Tx to Pa.
    All 14 are healthy and eating and drinking, but no extras sent. I had no clue how tiny Mille Fleur d'Uccles are! They are about half the size of my others! So cute!!

    What cuties! I am currently craving some Mille Fleurs. Oh, and by the way, we did find homes for all of the little ones. My mom gave in to keeping nine, though. AND, she promised me I could get more chicks next year. [​IMG]

    Ohhh thats great!

    The Mille Fleurs are even more adorable then I imagined they would be!

    There are still a couple breeds I will want to add to my flock next Spring too! Speckled Sussex and Orps, definitely.

    I want every chicken on the face of the planet to add to my flock.. But I'm in charge of an order for a heritage farm from McMurray, and we're getting some polish pullets and whatnots. Hopefully some Mille Fleurs and faverolles, too. And some interesting looking rare-breeds..
    I might have to sell off a lot of my flock next summer, though, because I'm going to college. :|
