    After waiting 2 months my babies are finally here! I ordered 25 heritage breed chicks from Rochester Hatchery and they sent 26. All in excellent health! I had one with the beginnings of pasty butt, but got that cleared up right away with some paper towel and warm water. A question, does anyone use poul-vite for the first few days? I will post some pics as soon as my kids bring back my camera after school. Thanks for being such a great group!

    Two months is a long wait, but so worth it. Congratulations on your babies!
