    Well, I went down at 8:30 to pick them up and they weren't open until 9am. I "wasted" one of my breaks on an unsuccessful pick up. Now, I'm leaving on my lunch hour and getting them, taking them home, setting them up & I'll take some pics...

    My post office lets me knock on the door and they let me in....even when they're not "officially " open....even when it's just hatching eggs.

    Quote:My post office lets me do that too. The first mail truck arrives at 6:30 in the morning, so I usually get a call before 7:00 to come pick up my chicks. I just ring the doorbell when I get there and tell them I'm there for the birds. No need to wait until 9:00 when the doors officially open. Trust me, they want those cheeping birds gone as soon as possible!

    The poor things were hoarse when I picked them up from cheeping so much! LOL I got FOUR (I paid for TWO). All of them looked pretty pale in their combs but ate & drank like champs once they were in their pen. All were very friendly. The two cockerels are 3 times the size of the two pullets. One pullet & one cockerel are very nice, one pullet is tiny and has a lot more black then the other one. The other cockerel also has a little bit more black than the other. Sorry no pics--my breaker kept blowing when I was trying to get a lamp on them and I ran out of time...

    Quote:Wow, an extra pair? Paul does take care of his customers!

    One of my trios was of mixed age, so I had to separate the younger ones. One of the bossy girls kept picking on the babies. The roos are a good deal larger than the pullets. At least you can tell yours apart, mine look so much alike I really have to watch them to see which is which.
