    Just got our chickens in the mail today from MyPetChickens.com. Got a great Voice Mail from the post office saying that our chicks had come in (you could hear them peeping in the background), and could someone please come get them....soon.

    We got 1 Exchequer Leghorn, 2 Speckled Sussex, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, and 5 Easter Eggers (we only ordered 4 but got a packing peanut).

    Now there's even more motivation to finish up the coop.
