    I drove 4.5+h round trip yesterday to pick up the "big" batch. As promised, here are the pics. I mentioned in my other thread that I ordered 8BO & 7RIR. When I got there, there were 10BO & 5RIR. After picking them out, there was one lone little BR left. I couldn't leave him there all by his little lonesome, so I officially have TWENTY chicks now. I posed to Hubba last night that I may have to build more coop-age. That man is really coming around [​IMG] . When I told him that we ended up with an extra, he said "ok," when I told him why (that I'm a sucker), he just smiled. When I told him we needed more coop space if sexing & vitality go well, he said "WE'll work on it...." [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyhoo, here are the pics & one of the olders as well:

    Posing for the pic (don't worry, I took care of the pasty butt after we got home from VBS, a few of them had it sooooo bad, vents blocked & all, as they stayed at the feed store overnight [​IMG] ). But they've all made it through their first night in their new home!!!

    I pulled one of each breed to photog. I just LOVE the little red beaks on the RIR's and their little wing colourings [​IMG]

    And my big babies [​IMG]

    I cannot believe the size difference in my ee's & the new babies. They are all so precious, but I am very fond of me ee's, as they've been handled more & are more friendly, and boy do they voice their opinion already!!! LOL

    I know the babies will come to that point too, but I think part of it is my ee's were my first babies. I'm so glad I got the 4 ee's first though, as it gave me chance to break myself in on a small scale, before I ended up with 16 more [​IMG]

    Holy birds, batman. I *think* there's SEVENTEEN babies!!!! Am I the only one counting 17 in the first pic? And I just did a count in the cage (they were surprisingly still) and I counted SEVENTEEN!!! *faintthud*

    I'll have to do a proper headcount later when I do bumfluff doodie.....
