Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.
Welcome to the flock :wave2:

Well when DSD came home this morning she was devastated. I felt horrible that I had to rush the kids right out to door for the bus but I told her we'd talk more about it when we get home.
The rest seem great today, I got a big gerbil water thing like Fodie pictured, but I need to drill some holes in the sides of my rubbermaid to make it work better, so hopefully I can do that tonight.
So I'm planning on getting a few EEs from the farm store, they'll have them in 2 weeks. I keep them separate until they're about the same size right?

My internet is beimg a turd so I can't use my computer. And typing on my phone is torture. I collected 4 eggs so far today! One was a massive blue double yoker. Eggs are doing great and the chickies are growing so fast. I think the blue coch might be a boy though I'll know for sure in a few weeks.catch up soon!

No clue its a preorder so maybe we choose when we pick up? Not sure! We want a variety so that we can see breed we prefer!

Congrats on the eggs Fodie and Natasha! I hope you get to pick out what you want Beth!

Ugh, if the first 18 days don't seem long enough, these last 3 days of the hatch are TORTURE!! LOL Esp when I want all of the babies to hatch so badly.
