    Absolutely I'll post pics! My kiddos are so excited as well. They all helped daddy to build the brooder box over the weekend. I think that made it more real for them.

    Wondering what you chose and where from. I am hoping they travel well and you have a lot of fun teaching the kids and taming the little monsters.

    I ordered from mypetchicken.com. They'll fly out of Cleveland tonight to DFW. I talked with them this morning and she said that they check the weather and put in two heat packs when it is really cold, so I assume they'll be doing that this time since we just had our coldest weather so far for this winters hit.

    And we ordered quite the variety.

    2 Buff Orpingtons
    2 Barred Plymouth Rocks
    2 White Plymouth Rocks
    2 Easter Eggers
    1 RIR
    2 Blue Cochins
    1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    1 White Silkie Bantam
    1 Mille Fleur d'Uccle Bantam
    1 Black Frizzle Cochin Bantam

    I really wanted to get a Speckled Sussex, but she wasn't available when the others were.

    So far the kids have asked to use the names Sally Henny Penny, Blueberry, Oatmeal, and Little Red Hen.
