Also in true Lisa fashion, there's a story:
So, I ordered them to be delivered the week of 5/25. This means that they usually ship on the Sunday of that week and you receive within 2 days. In my vast experience (once) of receiving the baby chickens, you get them on time. I ordered these chickens months ago, maybe right after I got the others. They were to be older and closer to laying age (started pullets is apparently the appropriate lingo for these types of birds) I call them big birds. About 2 weeks ago, i got a phone message that stated that the hens will be delivered the week of May 21. I was like "what? that's a Thursday, they ship on Sunday's i don't understand" but nevertheless we began to prepare in that we thought they may come this week but if they did not come by Tuesday, we just KNEW they were coming next week.
Tuesday came and went, we were both on alert all day but alas, no chickens.
Written off. See you next week chickens... right?
Got a call yesterday about 10:30 "your chickens are here" my first thought was "where are they trying to go?" then I realized she didnt mean my current chickens... she meant my NEW chickens... So off Dave went like a good doobie to get our new girls.
So after all that yapping, here they are:
This is Pearl
And we dont have a name for this girl yet.
