    My chicks came in this morning! They are ADORABLE! 3 EE's, one is yellow and two have that dark stripe pattern (thankfully one is darker than the other). I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how! [​IMG]

    Oh, and one of them picked her name on the way home. A Shania Twain song came on and she started peeping like crazy. She settled down, and then we wanted to figure out if it was the singer or just a wild moment. Well, turned on another Twain song and the peeping started again! I took the lid of the box off to make sure it was the same little girl and not only was she peeping her little head off; she decided to take a running leap OUT of the box and into my lap! I don't think I stopped laughing for a good half hour. So she is now Shania Twain. (She's the darkest chick, when I get the pics posted) [​IMG]

    Here are the pics!

    Sunny first. She was the spunkiest out of the box and seems to be a rather bossy chick.

    This is Scrambles. Probably my favorite right now. She seems to be the mellowest/sweetest one.

    And everyone together. BTW; who know a chick could eat/poop that much in such a short period of time??? They were only in the box about three hours at this point!

    And in the box on the way home... [​IMG]
