    Went to pick up our 5 this morning, open the box and there are three. Packing slip has the Silver Laced Wyandotte and Buff Orpington crossed out. MANY tears later from my 8 year old who had picked the Wyandotte she has agreed to look after her dad's bird until hers can ship. Not happy.

    Quote:I have been watching them for hours. They are very cute. One drops off to sleep and all the others fall over almost on cue. Then a minute later they are all back up and at the feeder as if they've starved in those few moments of sleep.

    Our dog is also fascinated by them and I think he has adopted them. He is sleeping next to their brooder like a protector.

    My one golden retriever can't wait to go "check on the babies" ! The other 2 goldens are interested but not as "attentive" Going to check the babies again now!
