    I was so bummed when I called yesterday and they said they were sold out. But they got their shipment from Crackle early! I got 3 buff orphingtons and 2 barred rocks. They are all supposed to be pullets, the cockerels were marked with something.

    The babies:

    Congratulations on your new chicks.

    I am counting more chicks in the photo than you say you got. Love that chicken math [​IMG].

    3 of each, LOL. Typing on my phone is wonky. This morning they were kind of groggy. I don't think they figured out the water bottle. Put some Rubbermaid lids (.25" tall) with pebbles in full of water. They perked up and went to town after I picked on up and set it the water. Husband will refill water at lunch as needed.

    1 Week Update!

    They are so much bigger already. They can fly up to the perch and from my hand back into the brooder. Their landings still need work. :)

    They are starting to get used to me and the dog. They completely freaked when I changed the pine shavings yesterday. I didn't have anywhere else to put them and they were scared of the scoop. They settled down pretty quickly though.
