    As tygab mentioned in her "fun to watch" post, she and I split an order of chicks from Ideal through our local Agway. Like hers, mine too are amazingly active. They were so lively, stuffing their faces with food and taking lots of drinks. They did NOT want to hold still for their portraits, lol. Here's the best I could do! [​IMG]

    This is Penelope and Sierra - Black Stars:

    This is Goldie - Ameraucana:

    And this is my FAVE, Chewie - Ameraucana:

    Plus, as an added bonus, here's a pic of my 1.5 week old Brabanter, Kiwi, with a sprouting mohawk:

    muffi, you have got the portrait mode down. I need to set something like that up, it's hard to get all their faces from above.

    Glad to hear yours are settled in well!

    I haven't named any yet. Their names will come to us.

    NewChickenMom, they were shipped from Ideal on Monday to our local Agway in 2 days, and the shipment appeared to go very well (the store reported only 2 out of 200 did not make it). Mine have been eating, running, hopping, like crazy since getting them home. Course we'll know for sure in a few days.
