    Last November, I ordered/purchased 10 bantam lavender Ameraucanas [​IMG] from John Blehm. It's been a very long winter, but the day is finally here! I'm going to pick them up tomorrow! [​IMG]

    That's exciting!

    Be sure to post pics once you get them home and all settled in, because I want to see!

    Quote:I got mine (from John) 2 weeks ago.

    They all came alive, and all doing well. They are so active and full of energy, running around at the lighting speed, I still do not know exactly how many I got.

    LOL

    Jealous here.

    I missed the chance at Chicks, thought there would be more time, that's what I get for thinking.

    We might get a shot at some eggs later [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We definately need photos.

    I got some Chantecler chicks from John last year. They all grew up great and are laying now. John is a good guy!

    Carole, that's great to hear. I'm picking up 10 partridge Chanteclers from John later today. I can't wait!! These chicks are a Christmas gift that I have been waiting for all winter. I think they'll be pretty special. Spring is here!!
