    I think I worried more than I should have - peeps were unconcerned with their new digs, and never missed a beat - eating and drinking the second minute they came out of the carrier. It took me three trips for 22 chicks. They are 6.5 weeks, and READY to be out of our sun porch. [​IMG]

    The white pullet is a polish or poland. I bought a straight run of polish chicks, and she was one of two pullets, the other three are roosters. They are very friendly.
