    [​IMG] Got a call around 8:40 this morning, and had them home by 9:30. One sub. was made, so I should have a blue hamburg (splash I guess), part. rock, and three EEs. Two of the EEs have the fattest, fluffiest faces I've ever seen [​IMG] Here they are!!
    When the box was opened:
    In the brooder:
    Diesel and Angel keeping tabs on the new family members:
    No names yet, except DH wants one to be named Jenny - so I'll give that name to the part. rock. All are sexed pullets (hopefully).

    How exciting! They are so cute.
    I am expecting mine next week. Did they e-mail you when they were shipped?

    Quote:This is my 3rd time ordering from MPC, and this is the first time I received a notification that they'd shipped. But it also notified me that a substitution had been made. So I'm not sure if they notified me only due to that???? They tell you that they will not notify you when chicks have shipped, so I was pretty surprised (and happy) to hear from them.
    Hope your arrive as happy and healthy as my little gals [​IMG]

    Mine shipped yesterday from MPC as well, but I haven't received them. Maybe tonight on the Express truck or tomorrow morning. [​IMG] I definitely wasn't planning to add more chickens, until I saw they had a few Rare Copper Marans available. I did have a substitution and was called yesterday morning. [​IMG] Congrats on your new chickens-love their little chubby cheeks! (I have two 23 week old EEs from MPC and they are absolutely beautiful)
