    Can't wait to see you pictures. I am a first time chicken owner too! Ours are now almost 4 weeks and almost 3 weeks old. We felt the same way when the PO called. I actually couldn't sleep the night before they came. Congratulations!!!!![​IMG]

    Congrats to you! Hope the babies are all OK. Post some pics soon. After more than 8 months I still get a kick out of my chickies. Beware this site enables chicken addiction.

    Congratulations on your babies, you'll do just fine if you keep them warm and keep their bums clean. I'm happy for you jumping in the BYC club.

    Okay, even if though I'm working at the P.O, they'd better not call me at almost 1am to come get my chicks! [​IMG]

    Hope they all arrived great!

    They are here safe and sound. I ordered 8 and received 9, I think the extra is another cuckoo maran, which is a little wobbly and looks tired, hopefully she'll perk up. One of the silkies looks like its toes are curled up or something. Otherwise they are eating and drinking and look great.

    I ordered: 2 EE's , 1 buff orp, 1 sex link, 1 NN, 1 cuckoo maran(got 2), and 2 white silkies. I will post pics a little later, I want to let them settle in a bit. They are noisy little buggers!
