    I ordered my first chicks from Meyer's Hatchery and they arrived yesterday! Meyers is great because they can do small orders for people like me who live in the city and have to follow rules (sort of...). Here is a photo of my 3 girls, Barred Plymouth Rock, Ameraucana, and Speckled Sussex. They seem to be doing great, all eating, drinking, and pooping normal. Today they even looked like they were playing games with each other. Is it possible to handle them too much when they are young? [​IMG]

    Adorable! I handle mine lots; just be really gentle. You can go to my page to see what I do to tame 'em and some pics. Enjoy!

    They are the cutest little things! I handled mine at just a few days old, and they're now snuggly little pullets! [​IMG]
