    Well I finally found the cord to the camera and I'll start posting more pics. I believe the pics were taken the evening they arrived from the post office. 2 died in shipping [​IMG] but the 8 I have left are doing wonderful.[​IMG] I put them in a new house today so they can be outside. [​IMG]

    If I remember tomorrow I"ll take a new pic to see the size difference from about 2 days old to around a 10 days old.
    Also a couple of pics of the chickens i ordered from meyer that were of unknown breed. Wife had a chance to look at the catalog from meyer and said she thought they were all different kinds of polish bannies.

    Mandarins are way cool looking as well. I would have loved to have gotten them also. I mainly got the black east indies to be a contrast to the white crested ducks. Figured they might look cute together swimming around in the pond.
    I know one thing for sure... too many ducks make a big mess fast. [​IMG]
