    My chicks were due to arrive tomorrow morning and I have been so excited. They just called from the hatchery to say that they didn't have enough to fill the order so they will be sending them next week. [​IMG] My guineas also come next week so I was hoping to have 1 week with the chicks before getting the guineas come. Guess I will have one busy week next week with all the babies coming.

    That's a Bummer!! Mine were to arrive this week but then I couldn't find someone to watch them over Easter when we are gone for 4days so had to delay shipment of them and the next date they had available was I feel for you!!! [​IMG]

    aww, sorry to hear that. Perhaps delaying the guineas could help? Glad to hear your going to have all those fuzzy butts!

    Oh man! Thats awful. I would also be sad. The waiting is the worst part. We have some on order for the 23rd of next month. We also have a bunch in the incubator and a bit more under a broody hen. I have begun to wonder what I am thinking.

    Hey I have that squirrel picture too! I love squirrels. LOL

    It was Townline hatchery. But I can't blame them, it was a huge order and they just didn't have enough to fill the entire order of 100. So I can understand. Now if it was an order of 10 and they couldn't fill it, then I would probably have to wonder. Oh well, now we have more time to get things definitely ready. I think we need to build another brooder for just in case so we will get that done this week.
