    First post on these forums, but I just wanted to say that I just received my first baby chicks, and they are adorable. We ordered them from MPC and they shipped right on time. When I got the package, I was so excited to hear them peeping up a storm. Every chick seems happy and healthy, with no pasting up-- and they're smart! They learned what food and water was on their own, with minimal effort on my part. Now they're all settled into their brooder, eating, drinking, and chirping. [​IMG]

    I would have taken up-close shots, but I didn't want to cause them too much stress. Maybe I'll take more in a few days. ;p

    Ooo! Did you see my thread? I think you have some hatchmates of mine, which also arrived today from MPC. Mine also learned how to use the nipple waterers right away (helped that they are in with day old keets that are banging away at the nipples).. They are so cute!
