    I just got them in today---two sick ones and all----but the other 24 are happy healthy and peeping away.
    Some of them are big and fluffy and others are half the size of the big ones. I've never had bantams before so I don't know the size ratio.

    Also what breeds do yall see? I can only tell EEs. Thanks!!

    Oooh! I think I see a blue Polish in the middle! [​IMG] And possibly a blue polish with white top below that, and a black polish with white head above the middle one. There is one right up next to the polish in the middle, that looks like it might be a turken? Not sure. Just looks like a naked chicken neck right there.

    Those are the ones that jumped out at me. No idea on the other ones. It looks like a lot of yellow fluffy butts! [​IMG]

    Congrats!

    I think that grey one is a Silver Laced Polish.

    Quote:Whatever kind of Polish it is...gorgeous!! [​IMG] LOL!

    I can't wait til Spring to pick up some more. They are so sweet!

    That reddish/buff chick closest to the waterer could be a Buff Orpington?

    Is the really deep mahongany one an EE? It's hard to see the muffs, but I had one that looked like that.

    The little blue and yellow one at the waterer in the corner kind of looks like my OEGB that was Columbian colored.

    Yea, I think the deep mahongany one is an EE. She's really a beautiful color and she has greenish grey feet. The blue and yellow one is a trip..all she does is drink water and then lean backwards so far that she falls over.[​IMG] I was really hoping for more orpingtons that just the one [​IMG] My two grown Buff Orps lay really really well.

    I don't see any bantams in there, they are just big big chicks and bigger big chicks [​IMG]

    The orangish one is probably a buff orpington, or possibly a new hampshire red. The whites are most likely white leghorns and/or easter eggers. I don't know the little black and white ones, I saw a pic on their site that looked like them, but I can't remember what they were now! Cute babies, that's what they are!! I wish I would have gotten some polish in mine, guess I'll have to buy some [​IMG]

    Aww Shelley. It looks like from what I've seen from other peoples pics that you're the only one that didn't get any polish!! [​IMG]
    It must be a conspiracy.[​IMG] MPC must have known how bad you wanted some. Thats how it normally goes with me anyway! Everytime I want something really bad someone else usually gets it! [​IMG]
