    my first order of chicks! ordered 25 cornish X from McMurray.

    post office called at 3:30 a.m. and zoom i went to Lapeer. aka 'town'. amazingly, i remembered shoes and clothing and looked pretty decent! my 10 yr. old was ready to assist and helped count. i believe i received 27 total.

    home, watered and fed. only one casualty thus far. one was pretty much DOA. others eating and drinking well. will post pics when fully awake![​IMG] glad i made cinnamon rolls yesterday so all i have to do is bake them this a.m. oh, it is a.m.!

    8 weeks till dinner!

    next batch of cornish X and mixed layers arrives in 3 weeks...i may need therapy by then!

    and the crazy is on!

    hey Mark...thanks. i was info'd when i picked up it's 3:30, 5:30 or 10:30 a.m. she felt bad waking us. i was glad, better than throwing them in a corner or the other horror stories we hear. we have great postal service here.

    this is the part when i wish the cinnamon rolls were already hot and covered with icing...

    Quote:are you taking the cinnamon rolls or the chicks??? [​IMG]

    my dumb question...is it normal for them to just flop down and sleep???? my other chickens were all 'started' so, i have no experience in this part of the process. want to keep them happy and healthy...i smell cinnamon buns.
