It's ok. I got 1 Americana 1 Cuckoo Maran and 2 Golden laced Wyandottes.

There was a ton of the dark Wyandotte chicks and this little dusty brown one came out of no where and jumped up. She was mine fast.

They are doing great! It's mostly dried up, and smaller now. I did have one die, he seemed to have spraddle leg, and kept throwing his head back and falling backwards, I tried realigning them with a bandaid, but then he would fall over and both legs would go straight out behind him. Plus I think there was something wrong with his lungs, there was a popping sound when he would breathe, he only lasted one day, poor baby!

Poor thing, I've had few of those over years both my own and hatchery day olds - always sad. So happy to hear the others are doing well!
