    My order from mypetchicken arrived this morning. They were all very active and look great. They have been eating a lot and it took them a while to start drinking. I dipped their beaks in the water but they stayed away for a while. They have been huddled under the heat lamp and are starting to get sleepy. They are so adorable!

    They are adorable! I just received my order from MPC this morning too! [​IMG] I'm no expert, but the chick in the lower right hand corner of your first pic looks like a RIR.

    When I got my first chickens, I got pullets that were 17 weeks old. They're still very wary of me - no way will they let me touch or pet them - except the New Hampshire Red will let me stroke her back occasionally and very briefly. So I'm eager to get chicks next and be a little closer to them. Your chicks are adorable!
