    I'm soooo excited right now!! My chicks were shipped out from Ideal yesterday & arrived in Central Indiana today @ 10am! The PO was great, the guy I talked to early this morning, called me on my cell as soon as they arrived [​IMG] I received all of my chicks (I ordered 12 pullets) & received 7 extra RIRs for "packing peanuts." They marked their heads, even tho I didn't request them to. They are all eating & drinking very well & are so funny when they sleep. There is an EE that has stolen my heart, she's so puffy & brave [​IMG] Okay enough, enough, I could go on forever! Here are some pics!

    The EE that I love is in the middle, the cream colored chick w/the black stripes

    Oooh they're so adorable!! I'm trying to be patient until this weekend when I get my chicks. EE's are sneaky like that--they're my favorite breed.

    Quote:OMG that is hysterical! [​IMG] My husband brought home 2 ginormous rolls of industrial-strength papertowels. They're super-absorbent & although they try, the babies can't pick & shred them. Thanks for looking [​IMG]

    Quote:Make sure you post pics, I'm sure mine will grow-up super fast & I'll be needing a baby-pic-fix [​IMG] I know me & my 6yo are arguing as to whom the EE belongs to. As soon as he got home from school he said "that one is my favorite" pointing to MY favorite!
