    Post office called at 6:15 A.M. and said chicks were there. Hubby ran to get them as I was covered in soap. In a few minutes my nine new babies were in their warm brooder eating and drinking. So proud! We got 3 Black Australorps, 3 Barred Rocks and 3 fuzzy yellow chicks that could be NH Reds or something else. I said I would take a substitution for the last 3 to get my order sooner, but still had to wait 5 weeks. So the yellow chicks will be a surprise. Hope they all make it, they look good on arrival anyway. Hubby is "chick-sitting", but I will sneak home a noon to see for myself. Good luck to all who are waiting.

    Well enjoy your new fuzzy butts. I'm jealous lol, I used to work close enough to be able to go home at lunch time and check up on things but not since moving to the country. Small price to pay though [​IMG]

    Congratulations! Your yellow ones may not be NH reds. I guess it depends on how "yellow" they are. Pictures are a must!

    I have not mastered the pics yet, but I do have some on my computer already. They came from My Pet Chicken. I expected extras, but not arrived.

    I am going to try the photo thingy but may not make it. This is unknown. Order NH Red, but don't think so, any ideas?
