    I can't sleep! I'm excited for that phone call in the morning. It's almost midnight here I better get some sleep or I won't have any energy to play with the babies tomorrow [​IMG] oh man I hope they are all ok [​IMG]

    OK UPDATE: I got them and took lots of pics and added them to my journal here>


    They all got here alive but one is acting a little sick. I don't know what happened...I checked his butt and looked in his throat as he was acting like there was something stuck in it. He was making a crowing motion with nothing coming out and his eyes are usually closed [​IMG] I don't think he will make it. Otherwise they are all eating and drinking and now they are all trying to sleep. My little boy has a hard time just letting them be. He wants to hang on to them and play with them.

    SO DO IT but I have to get the garbage out to the road lol. They are ALL so adorable. One of the faverolles OR one of the buff brahma's is one of the ones that is sick [​IMG] I hope she makes it.

    I wish you well! Ideal called Wednesday to let me know that my order would be delayed yet another week, so I cancelled everything. Third time at screwing my order was the charm for me! They had the unmitigated gall to ask me why?
