    My Meyer adopt me bargain chicks cant wait to see what they grow up to be :). I ended up with 9 out of 28 ( I ordered 27 got 1 spare ) Their replacing 12 of them of course the last ones didn't die till my 48 hours was up but oh well I planned on some loss .I went ahead and went for the replacement and paid for the 3 extra to make the minimum so i'll have 15 new ones coming this week hoping I have a bit better luck with them :)

    Thanks SamanthaBrooke :) I'm sure I'll be posting plenty of pics once they get some feathers I like having the surprise of not knowing what they are :)
    ChickenPersom Thanks :) Pretty sure it was the cold . I decided to order them last minuet . We were pretty warm here last week and I didnt really think about how cold it was where they were coming through . Meyer was great about replacing them though :)

    That's so exciting! Are they giving them a hot pack or something to help with the cold? I'll look forward to seeing what your chicks turn out to be [​IMG]

    Well I lost another this afternoon so I'm down to 8 . :( This one always seemed a little week so I'm not real surprised . But on a happier not I should be getting a call in the morning to go pick up my replacements at the PO so between the new ones and the eggs I have due to hatch my brooder wont look so empty :)

    [​IMG]Good luck with the rest of the first and the new batch! Are you putting electrolytes in their water? That could help with some of the stress from shipping and perk them up a bit.
