    Our surprise is here! They all made it and are LOUD this morning!

    47 chicks and 2 ducklings

    So far I've noticed a few polish, a couple of EE, a few silkies, the bantams appear to be old English. There don't appear to be a ton of bantams which is nice.

    Pictures and guesses to come!

    Still waiting on ours. Did your Tracking ever update Slip? Mine hasn't at all and even our hatching eggs.

    It did update but I don't know if it was before or after I picked up the package.

    WOW! Lucky on the Old English, I hope I get a few.

    I'm still waiting. My post office usually calls after 8:30 am when they officially open.

    My bio class is going to the computer lab today to start a research paper on birds which will give me plenty of time to stalk this thread for pictures lol

    I looked on their availability list and there's a lot of bantams for next week. Looks like the only turkey's left are the white broad breasted. And only Khaki's, Pekins, Ancona's and Swedish for the ducks. I'm real excited!

    Here are a few pictures! Not really great for 'guess the breed' but I will need help separating them into groups to figure out what all we have. I swear there's one chick I picked up 20x's...lol
