    I got the call from the post office this morning at 7:30. OMG, they are so much cuter than I thought they would be! I ended up staying with the brown layer collection from MMH because they didn't have all the ones available that I wanted. Ok, on to the pictures!

    Thanks. I've been checking for pasty butt, but so far only had two that needed a little cleaning. I jsut hope that I don't keep checking the same ones! I love watching them run around and then stop dead and just go on like nothing happened. Now I just need some names!

    Quote:I started by looking up baby names. I took words like 'strong' and seached to see what names came up. I have 6 day old chicks and so far I have..Nemo(chick with broken wing), Petie, Sadie, Rose, Noodle and I'm still looking for the 6th name. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. We had a blast after dinner just watching them. Better than TV!

    I have 26, I think. At least that's what I ordered(25 from the brown egg layer collection and 1 mystery chick). I've tried counting them, but always come up with a different number, lol. All made it here alive and this morning all are still here and looking good.

    A great place for baby name is www.behindthename.com
    They have more names than you thought possible. We have a few names already. Dh named the mystery chick Top Hat. It's a polish one I think. And I have 5 little red head ones that I'm naming after famous red heads. We have a Lucy, Clara Bow, Maureen, Pippi, and Ginny. One of the little black ones is Branwen. we don't have names for any of the others
