    Sooo Excited. I have 6 babies on their way to me as I type this. I ordered all females, a Delaware, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, New Hampshire Red, Rhode Island Red & Astralorp. I am getting them from Meyer & they shipped out yesterday. First time I have ever ordered chicks so a little nervous about them being ok with the temps jumping everywhere before they get to me. Everything is set up in the coop for their arrival already. I just can't wait. Kind of feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas and even my husband is a little excited to get the little ones.

    I had mine shipped Monday Oct 15 by 4:15 and they were here Tuesday Afternoon about 1pm. I'm not sure how long it would take to NY. I'm in NC. Good luck with your little ones!
