    [​IMG] Just had to share the exciting news that my 5 peeps arrived safe and sound via express mail today! I am a new mama to a buff orpington, silver-laced wyandotte, golden-laced wyandotte, australorp and salmon favorelle!

    All of the babies are doing well; only the Salmon is a tad 'dull' - she's eating and drinking but has a wee bit of diarrhea. She's not pasting though so that's good. I'm saying a little prayer that she perks up!

    I am wasting too much time standing beside the brooder watching them run about and listening to their happy little 'peeps'![​IMG]

    Oh - how CUTE!!!

    I used the same stock tank brooder. Looked HUGE at first with the little itty bitties.

    But just wait till they start scratching and flying around. You'll love the space.

    Enjoy your little ones and thanks for sharing.

    I love the little one in the last pic just flopped down snoozin! With my first ones they would all be laying everywhere and I'd have to make a noise to make sure they were ok! [​IMG]
