    I got my order from Ideal this morning. 10 Cornish X's, 10 welsummers, and 5 EE's. One of the EE's, looked like it was going to be buff, expired en route, and one of the welsummers is really struggling. I'm not sure I'll be able to save it. The rest all look fine. They're my first welsummers, and I sure hope they lay beautiful eggs!

    I would be bouncing off the walls with excitement at new babies, but I've got the FLU, for the first time in a long, long time, and I feel like last week's garbage. Hope baby chicks can't get sick from people.

    Two of the EE's look like they're going to be white, one is dark with a rust-colored head, and one is the typical light, chipmunky baby. They're so cute, and I'm thrilled to have a little variety in my EE colors now, instead of just my two plain brown (but very pretty) girls.
