I'm hoping to get some next year. Maybe you can remember to come back here and update this so I know how they do!

It can be hard to identify chicks because of the great variety of colors in them, especially at hatcheries, but with a little research you can be reasonably sure in your guess.

Wish I ordered two, I feel bad for little thing, but she is smart, was the first one to figure out the water on her own, and everyone followed slowly after her.

Hi there! So it's been a week now, I'm curious to see if you're seeing something similar. Of my four chicks, my Swedish Flower hen is the most social with me. The two Easter Eggers aren't bad.... but when my hand goes anywhere near the Fayoumi, she starts screeching and running/flapping all over the place. If I do somehow get her to hold her, she just wiggles and kicks and flops and screams until I put her back down. I know Fayoumi's aren't the cuddling type, but WOW! Just curious if yours is similar. Hope your babies are all well!

Ya after day two my EF become the most "omg human aaaaahhhhh" of the group. She settles down ok after a bit, but she is a flighty lil thing for sure.  I plan to tempt her with mealworms, got a bag last night so will attempt later after work.  My dark cornish has been the best for coming up to me when I stop by and say hi.

Ohhh, good idea with the meal worms! I'm going to have to try that.
