  1. We got our first order of chicks today. Love my new babies but we've already lost one and it looks like we might lose another tonight. [​IMG]

    Here they are in the box after I picked them up from out Post Office.

    They are so cute. I am so sorry about your loss. That is so hard. Watch them carefully and make sure that each and everyone has a drink (make sure you dip their beaks in the water). Make sure they don't have "pasty butt". Every once in awhile some need a little extra TLC. Good luck.

    Oh, I kept reading after the picture, and I didn't see the line separating your post from your signature line, and I thought at first that you were listing what came in the box, til I saw 7 beagles, and then I was like [​IMG] , and I had to go back and reread it! Oh, boy I was sitting here for a moment trying to figure out if it was a mispelling, or some new breed of chicken! Lordy it's late and I need to go to bed now! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    BTW, congrats on the new babies, they are precious! If they seem lethargic offer them a little sugar water and they should perk back up. Good luck!
