    I ordered 6 Brown Leghorns, 1 Ameraucana and 2 Swedish ducks. The majority of these do not look like chick pics I have seen of Brown Leghorns. Did I get something else??

    Where did you order them from? I have to agree, I am not seeing the breeds you ordered, or at least not in the expected numbers - were there other chicks ordered or are the ones over/above the number you listed just the packing peanuts?

    Looks like they just cleaned out the brooder and gave you whatever. There's only 2 that could be leghorns, 2 ducks but the majority look more like red sexlink pullets not packing peanuts. Not what you ordered but not bad if they're mostly pullets.

    I'd be sending them a pic and asking what's up.

    X 3 - regardless of what the chicks you got prove to be, how many there are or whether they used males or females for the packing peanuts you did not get what you ordered and paid for, period.

    Well, I'm being told the red chicks are all males and the striped are brown leghorns. I ordered 6 brown leghorns and 1 Ameraucana. Still doesn't add up. Any guesses to what the males are?

    They do not look like any of the breeds your ordered (I may see two Leghorns and a Swedish duck, but other than that, they all look a lot like Production Red "packing peanuts" or Red Sex-Links).
