    Chicks arrived from Ideal this morning! 26 fine healthy chickies (Although after coming home from the rodeo tonight one died suspect it didn't get enough water.... I dipped each and every beak when we unboxed them one by one but still feel a little guilty maybe I missed this little girl? They are ALL GIRLS! I ORDERED PULLETS!...right? [​IMG])
    I still haven't id'd them all yet but know I got a mix of standard breeds and standard cochins... those feathered feet just slay me! No NN's though [​IMG] I figured I might get at least a couple of them in my assortment but alas [​IMG]
    Here are a couple of pics of the little piggies! They have already emptied the waterer and the feeder in about 12 hours Gads! [​IMG]

    I'm tired and just now realized that the pics of the buff orpingtons and the lighter colored yellow (butter colored?) didn't load into Photo Bucket, will have to play with that tomorrow!

    Oh and there is one I suspect to be blue /splash? It is basically yello with blue/gray undertones to it... Kinda like the first single chick pic but much more subtle in coloring. I will make sure to get a good photo of this one in the morning as well.... Any help Id'ing would be greatly appreciated and welcomed! After just one day... I definately know, we are not in Kansas any more ToTo! [​IMG] I'm gonna have to name one of the girls Barnie just cuz I am going to be screaming and pulling my hair out ALOT![​IMG] [​IMG] Chicks have been put to bed and so shall I follow their lead! Night All!

    Awwwww......they are precious!!!! They do eat and drink like little hogs!! If you elevate the water on something it helps keep it cleaner. [​IMG] Here is what I do to ensure that all my pullets really ARE pullets. I give them girl names, call them she....even when their comb gets all big and red, keep doing it. Works well!!! Of my 5, 12 week old chicks, only 3 turned into roos using that method!!! [​IMG] (and yes, I am serious, and yes they were sexed pullets)
