    I was woke up a little before 6am today by my cell phone. I'm on call 24hrs a day for my job and my first thought was what's wrong now! It was not work this time, it was the post office saying my new chicks had arrived.

    I got over there and got them home within about 5 minutes of them calling and all of the chicks seem to be doing great. There are a couple of ones that I am a little concerned about, but I am hoping that that they will continue to do well. (27 chicks in all, 20 Delawares, 2 Golden Polish, 4 Black Minoricas and my surprise free chick is an Easter Egg, I think.)


    Here is when I first got them home and opened them up!
