    in my best Paul Revere voice!!!!!


    I got the call and I get to pick up my lil' boys/girls....but hoping there are more girls
    I am getting s/r bantams from urch/turnland. It is about an hour from me and I can get them at 2pm. I will be there at 1:59! I could barely sleep last night with all these questions running thru my head and checking the brooder every 5 minutes to make sure the temps are consistent. I will post pics as soon as they are settled in. I think that last time I was this excited was when I was expecting my daughter's birth!!! Is that crazy or what???


    here's a few, I didn't take pics of all of them by themselves yet. A couple I am not sure what they are?

    Nothing more exciting than that first batch of babies! I couldn't sleep the night before mine came last year. Congratulations!
