    My order from My Pet Chicken came yeseterday. They seemed a bit more clummsy on their feet then other chicks I've gotten but then I realized, that since they shipped express I got them a full day earlier. They were eating a drinking fine, and were pretty active for day olds!

    One did scare me though, I went in to check them and she was strecthed out on the ground under the lamp with her neck stretched out and her wings out to. Think spread eageled little chick.
    I thought "OH NO!" But she was fine. I think just sun bathing under the lamp. I've caught her doing it a couple other times and she seems fine otherwise.

    Need to post photos!

    Yup, mine did that too. I thought it was dead, but it jumped right up when I reached for it. They like to sleep like that.
