    We got our babies today. I was so worried about some being DOA and then losing some after we got them so I ordered extras, but they are all doing AWESOME and with the few extras that Meyer Hatchery threw in, we ended up with 36 chicks. We have 22 Cornish Crosses, 4 Golden Sex-Link pullets, 3 Buff Orpington Pullets, 5 Dominique Pullets, and 2 Dominique Roos (at least that is what we ordered :>) This is our first time having chickens and so far the experience is just awesome!!! Here are some pics of the little fluff balls!!

    Aww soo cute! Though, I am kind of numb to the fuzzy cuteness right now due to the substantial amount of babies I'll have here by Saturday! Oi! But, your babies are adorable and good photography. [​IMG] Your Dominiques look just like my Plymouth Barred Rocks, and I have Buff Orps that age now too! [​IMG] Very cute! Its hard to remember my "big" guys that tiny! [​IMG]

    Meyer was awesome!! I would definately use them again. They arrived healthy, started eating and drinking (and pooping [​IMG]) right away. And they haven't stopped yet. They are just doing awesome!! We ended up with 2 extra cornish crosses and I think it is 1 extra Golden Sex-Link, but is could also be a Buff Orpington. We will have to wait for a few more weeks to see for sure. And I cannot believe how fast they grow, they arrived as little fuzz balls, and 2 days later are already getting feathers. Oi!! Why is it that babies don't stay small long enough??
