    Well after some wait my chicks arrived today![​IMG]
    There are 6 RIR and 6 BR and there is an extra one in there that looks like the rest of the RIR's.
    I have to admit I did not think day olds were that spunky, they practically popped out of the box when I opened it.
    I'm happy they all learned to drink and eat very quickly and it seems like they never finish eating and drinking!
    I wasn't expecting so much activity so soon, they run jump and looks like there flapping there little wings lol.
    Well wish me luck, i'm a little nervous but sooo happy!
    Thanks all BYC members for so much valuable info.

    Okay I have to finally ask. What is this "Woot Woot" thing? What is it supposed to mean? Being from Calif. We have never encountered people saying woot woot.

    lol

    Hooray! [​IMG] It sounds like you've ended up with some nice and healthy chicks! It's good when they are spunky and active. That means that they are healthy. Congratulations on your new babies! They are adorable. [​IMG]

    Quote:Well I hope they stay healthy! I got a couple extra incase of any unfortunate deaths.
    It's amazing watching them there so funny, I love when they pop up in the air.
    Thanks [​IMG]
    I can see why this is so addicting, I'm in trouble...
