    This is driving me nuts! past 7 am and no call yet, it does say delivery today but it hasn't updated since last night. At least they let me get a full night's sleep. (I am hoping that they call and I can get them before it starts to pour out)

    [​IMG] well we have a bunch of beautiful chicks. 2 DOA. 1 has an injured leg. But the others look great. Kind of staggerey like they need to lay down and rest. Gave them all a sip of sugar water. Then mixed up the blue grow gel I ordered from McMurray that came with them. So far I'm pleased :)

    I was suppose to get 200 chicks from the hatchery today, but they called yesterday and said they didn't have a good hatch and had to put my order back a week. Very disappointing!

    Sorry about your losses and the one with injured led, but glad you got most of them in good health! What cuties!!! I bet your 2-year-old is enjoying them a lot.
    I use save-a-chick in the water for electrolyte reposition.
    I am getting a little nervous about the shipping of my chicks scheduled for next week. I hope they all arrive well.

    It appears out of my twelve chicks from Mcmurray (straight run Red Sex links) I have three boys. I am surprised and pleased it wasn't a higher ratio of males. All are growing in first back feathered and flying around like crazy. My grand total now stands at twenty chickens. I might be a little crazy this year. Lol
