    My babies arrived this afternoon, just arond 1:00!! It was lovely because they were due tomorrow, although they had told me there is a large possibility they'd show up today. The phone rang and even before the woman could tell me they were there, I heard the peeping and hopped in the car. All the girls are happy and healthy. I'm sitting here watching and they've all just woken from a quick nap to have some more food, which they found immediately.

    MPC gave us an extra chick (another black star, who is absolutely tiny), so now we have a well rounded 6! (I'm sure the number won't be that small for long. I'm already in love!)

    I've taken tons of pics already--sorry the quality isn't so hot. I haven't quite mastered getting down in the brooder to take that perfect picture. After they've destressed and rested a bit, I'll try again [​IMG]

    Ok, enough rambling, here's what you opened the thread for:

    Having a little nap [​IMG]

    Food!! [​IMG]

    The pictures I took of the little black Silkie didn't come out well, but she is gorgeous. I'm already falling hard for her. She's the most vocal and puts up quite the fuss if left on her own. If I lay my hand down in the brooder, she immediately hops up on it and promptly falls asleep.

    Ohhh, I'm in trouble [​IMG]

    I have a feeling that next order isn't as far off as I'd like to think. Gosh, I am such the sucker. I've barely left them for 10 minutes!!

    The Delaware is so fun to watch. She has the sweetest face and is probably by far the most curious of the bunch. They're all a hoot. I love when they get a little burst of energy, hop up and just take off across the brooder. I've finally left them alone for a bit, but am itching to go back out there.

    The Silkie is hilarious to watch as well--she's so clumsy and teensy. I'm addicted to them all. We've already named them...after other 'cool chicks' [​IMG] The SLW is Elvira (so not my idea), the Golden Campine is Goldie Hawn, one of the Black Stars is Aretha (Franklin, that is) and the other is Gladys Knight. And the Silkie is Patti LaBelle, because of the fluffy feathers.
