    awesome! They are cuties and you must be excited.

    May I ask when you put the order in? I'm trying to retro-calibrate when my chicks will be in (since I ordered them indirectly through a feed store at the end of March)!

    Thank you all. Yes I am quite proud of my new babies.

    Tygab - I ordered them quite a while ago and they shipped yesterday, but when I called them when I placed the order they gave the the earliest possible ship date based on orders, etc.

    And Muffi, I had ordered both buff and red silkies - which I had never heard of before. I was checking out the cute black lines/ spots on some of them and I think they were hand made to mark the difference of buff versus red. Could be wrong though. Somone on the forum told me that red and buff are the same. I'm curious to see if its true.

    Never heard the popsicle comment before. That's a new one on me.
