    My first set of fuzzy butts are here. The PO Distribution plant called this morning and I drove 45mins to pick them up, otherwise they would have had to sit at the plant all night because they came in after the truck left this morning. I put them in the brooder and ran out to the coop for my silkie surrogate mother and all is good!

    I got Ideal's STD Assorted Cochin Pullet pack 16 total, no packing peanuts. 4 Red, 4 White, 4 Blue, 2 Buff, and 2 Gold

    Black Betty our silkie, this hen is gold to me. She was helping raise 6 chicks with two of my other silkies and I just knew she would take these chicks if I put her in with them.

    I am amazed that all sixteen fit under her!

    I also have 33 eggs in the incy going into lockdown tomorrow and 25 day-old chicks due to arrive next wed. I am in fuzzy butt heaven!

    Edited because I can't seem to spell today!

    LOL, it cracks me up. My 19 yr old son went out and looked at them. He's like where are the babies. Cheep, Cheep, Cheep....OMG she ate them. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Gotta love it.

    It did take her a bit to sit just right to get them all underneath her.
