    New chicks finally got here...after waiting two days. Seems they shipped out late.

    2 New Hamp. Red
    2 Golden Lace Cochin
    2 Delaware

I can tell the barred rocks...have 5 thinking one of the extra may have been a BR. Now as for all the Gold babies I'm

    Here are some pictures...I'm so excited!

    Nice assortment.

    Most of the time the "packing peanuts" are all little Roos.

    Actually I have
    Had to recount. Babies are all doing well...eating, drinking, doing there little chick runs about the box...The New Hampshire Reds are very curious. Still trying to figure out which ones are the Ia blue...They all come to my hand and peck at my rings and nails. Heat is just right, they they all over the box so I'll leave the light alone for now.

    Bargain I may take you up on the offer...if the "peanuts" are all roo's don't know how that will float in a hen house where "roo"(my buff orp rooster) is king. He may not like the
