    30 bantams from Welp Hatchery are due to come today or tomorrow! [​IMG]

    Though I keep getting nervous, because I keep seeing everyone posting about chicks getting lost in the mail, and coming in dead! [​IMG]

    The wait is driving me nuts! Luckily we're picking up a horse today, so that will keep me occupied for a little while!

    How do you guys get past the wait?!

    YAY! My chicks came (too) early this morning...I got the call at 6:45am.... [​IMG]

    There was only one that was dead - it looks like he got squished, not sick or too cold. Luckily he was an extra.

    The neighbors ended up with 15, I ended up with 17 - of course it was my order that came with a lot of extras [​IMG]

    I wasn't ready AT ALL for them. I didn't think they would call until around noon, but thats what I get for thinking [​IMG] So right now they are camping out in a few boxes up in the bathroom, until I can get the dog crate set.
