    OHhh ohh ohh...I have 7 Pilgrim Geese and 5 Khaki Campbells coming Wednesday too! From Ideal! They must be having one BUSY week. I'm so excited. I've never had geese, but I adore my ducks, and I've always been fascinated by geese and have heard nothing but good about Pilgrims as far as folks that like geese go. I'm all set up, I made a huge brooder in the basement by taking a roll of aluminum flashing and turning it into sort of a coral and then putting down bedding... I just hope I can keep it warm enough, I'm going to turn everything on tomorrow evening to make sure all is working properly.

    I also have peeps shipping from Ideal on Wednesday. My order is all pullets:

    2 Australorp
    2 Barred Rock
    2 Buff Orpington
    2 Rhode Island Red
    2 Easter Egger

    +packing peanuts for warmth (been reading up on the "meat bird" forum!)

    I'm hoping to also get them Thursday. I've been setting the brooder up in the garage - trying to get the temperature at a steady level. Already have newspaper on wire, covered by pine shavings, which is topped with several layers of paper towels. Keeping my fingers crossed that all my pullets arrive safely, disease-free and thriving!

    I have my first ever order shipping out form Ideal on Wed. I am in CA and have not heard anything other than the original order confirmation from a week and a half ago.

    I ordered 4 Khaki Campbells (3 female 1 male) 3 Australorps & 3 EEs.
    I am SUPER excited!! Since I am in CA I am assuming they will arrive on Fri. (although I will heat up the brooder on Wed afternoon just to be safe) I have cleared my schedule and have called the PO to warn them and make sure they have correct phone numbers. Can't wait!!
