I am pleased to announce the arrival of twenty-five healthy and energetic chicks thanks to Welp Hatchery. The chicks shipped Wednesday and I picked them up this Friday morning at the Post Office. I ordered 5 Buff Orpington, 5 Black Australorp, 5 White Rock, 5 Barred Rock and 5 RIR. I dipped their beaks in sugar water upon putting them in the brooder and introduced them to their feed an hour later. I watched them all day and they appear to be very healthy and strong for only two days old. Thanks to all the people on this forum for your excellent advise, and two thumbs up to Welp for sending such healthy chicks.
