    Well I got a brooder built, have the chicken coop ready, and bought my babies today.

    I am so super excited. I'm a nurse and worked last night 7pm to 7am this morning. I knew I was going to get them today, and slept 3 hours and now can't stop watching them. I love them. They are so cute and funny how they play and sleep. They are little narcoleptics, ha ha ha. I have 2 Australorp's, 2 Isa Red's, 1 Jersey Giant, and 1 Orpington.

    I have a question. My Jersey Giant chick looks like, well I'm not sure how to describe it, looks like he/she is getting feathers but also looks like he/she is losing them. Here is a picture, what do you think? I'm new to this. All my other chicks have most of their feathers but..,[​IMG]

    I appreciate any input. Thanks! [​IMG]

    I love your enthusiasm!

    There is nothing I don't love about my chickens.

    You will enjoy them immensely.
