    I'm sitting on pins and needles... the new batch of partridge rock chicks are supposed to arrive today.

    My first batch was a group of 15, ended up all males. Sold.

    Ordered more - the hatchery called - hatch failed. Postponed three weeks.
    The hatchery called - hatch failed postponed three more weeks.
    The hatchery called, hatch failed. Three more weeks.

    Today they're supposed to be here! I ordered 25 straight run this time. If they're all male I'm gonna drop over dead.

    They're here! They ALL made it! And Laura left for a business conference with the new camera! Ahhhh. I'll try and make the old one work. Right now they're pigging out and headed toward food comas.

    What cuties! I would like to get some PRs in the spring. May I ask where you got yours from? I just ordered BA, SLW, and BO from Ideal. The shipping on those was pushed out a week. Congratulations, and enjoy your fuzzy butts! [​IMG]

    I got these from Welp and I'm really pleased with both their communication and the condition of the chicks. They're eating like little pigs. Very busy group. They're almost through the grow gel and starter mix I made for them already.
