Got a call at 6:30--chicks at the post office! They shipped from Cackle yesterday, and here they are! Ordered 25, got an extra black australorp, for a total of 26. They all are active, peppy, eating and drinking well, no pasty butts on arrival, and I smoothed back their butt down with vaseline one at a time, dipped their beaks, and sent them off into their new world! The EEs are pretty--two brown and black speckled-y ones, one light yellow and possibly lavender one, one light yellow with darker lavender/gray on her back, and one gold and buff looking. This is really fun! Enjoy the fluff!! Here is my brooder setup--hope it holds these girls until the coop's done! The Flock, snacking and drinking... This is Stella, named by my 8 year old son. She's very pretty, and I would have picked her for mine, too. This is one of the other EEs These next 3 are Buttercup, named by my 6 year old daughter. I think she might be lavender? This is the slightly darker blond EE One of the Black Australorps (which now appears to be a BR, now that I see the purple marking...oops on my photo labeling!) One of the barred rocks One of the buff orps I'm in love!!!!!!!!!!
