    ordering chicks

    I have never ordered chickens online before, but I might plan to. However, how does it work? Is it guaranteed that it's safe for the chick? If so, what sites do you recommend? Also, do I have to pick up the chicks? Where?

    Blue Wyandottes??

    Hi everyone, I just hatched some blue Wyandotte chicks and some of them are almost a lavender color and the others are black. Why is this? Will the light ones grow up to be lavender in color or will they get darker?
