    Welcome from Indiana! [​IMG] And I hope all your babies arrive safe and sound! Got my first chicks from them 2 weeks ago...all of your breeds, except I got a black austrolorp and not a silver laced wyand. Have fun...they change SO quickly [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Congrats on getting chicks, and welcome to BYC! You're going to have a nice variety of chicks - make sure you post pics when you get them! There are many wonderful (and wise!) people on here, so never hesitate to ask questions. Make sure you check out all the different areas of the forum, too - it's a great neighborhood.

    Welcome and Congrats.

    You'll do fine, I was excited and worried too. My chicks are now a week old and doing just fine. Enjoy them, because they do grow so fast. At one week mine have their wing feathers and some tail feathers. They aren't the adorable 2 day old puff balls anymore. 4 more weeks and I'll be moving them to the big girl house!
