[FONT=tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]My Chicken Page[/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]Ordered from MyPetChicken.com on January 29, 2010. Shipped April 12th, received April 13th 2010. All were well, but the Easter Egger had two bent toes. I put cardboard on her foot and taped the toes in place (she looked like a duck foot with the splint, so I named her Ducky). The spint did not work, but she can roost so all is well. As of July 14, 2010, 3 of the six turned out to be roosters! I found a home for he EE and SS, I will hang onto the Polish ads see how he does...[/FONT]
updated July 14 , 2010 Chicks

[FONT=times new roman,times]Here is all six of them at 7 weeks old. The two in the middle discovered the sand under all the pine needles and are having their first dust bath. The other four are watching in amazement.[/FONT]
[FONT=times new roman,times]Here are photos of them at day one and 7 weeks:
Black Jersy Giant "Mini" she is the runt! At 7 weeks, she is still small:[/FONT]
I though this chick was my blue cochin, but she turned out to be the light brahma. At 7 week you can tell she is a brahma, but "poor breed quality". I think she is absolutely gorgeous! Her name is Zenny becasue she is soo Zen Hen.
[FONT=times new roman,times]I thought this chick was my light brahma, turned out to be the blue cochin chick. She is a splash cochin and I love her colors. Her name is Pearl.
[FONT=times new roman,times]This is Ducky, the crooked toed EE. A real clown and very squawky! TURNED INTO A ROO!! Found a home for him!
This is HiFive, my Golden Laced Polish. Realize she is probable a roo.....
[FONT=times new roman,times]And last, but not least Serene, my Speckled Sussex. She was the weakest chick out of the box, but now is the biggest and the Alph hen, she takes care of the flock. She is very very smart, and loves to be held and pet. ALSO TURNED INTO A ROO! Found a new home for him with 12 hens. Very sad to give him up...
[FONT=times new roman,times]Replacement chick 7/1/2010 to make up for the loss of my SS and my EE being a roo. She is an EE, and her name is Surrey (a town near Sussex...)[/FONT]
I felt sad that Surrey was alone so I went and got another chick two days later. Her name is Sundae becasue she is butterscoth colored.
