Ugh...I'm so dissapointed and sad. New babies arrived in bad shape.

    Ugh....the save a chick packets were expired a year ago. Whoever stocks at TSC needs a refresher course. I will try the feed store tomorrow.

    Update, lost the baby who I thought was dead on arrival. She was just too weak. The smallest Narragansett probably won't make it. I finally found some nutri drench. So many places were out of it. It worked well and except for the tiny one they are all eating with gusto and drinking well. I am hopefull for those ☺ Thank you for the mutri drench suggestion.

    I lost one Royal Palm and one Bourbon Red. The rest seem to be getting stronger. I am cautiously optimistic at this point. I will try to get a clear photo tonight when I get home from work. They must have had a really rough shipping experience.

    Yesterday I drove 90 minutes each way to pick up my turkey poult shipment and save them from sitting an extra 12 hours before arriving here in the hopes it would save some lives. I can't often do that as gas alone cost more than than the tutkeys which would be refunded by the hatchery anyways... but thankful I could this time. I had only one DOA out of 21. And one of my dogs stole another one. :mad: Both were chocolate and I only ordered 5 chocolates in the hopes of one good Tom for sex linked poults next year. :barnie

    So excited for a pretty great survival. :wee
