    5C56B2AD-B286-4C5B-B7E9-708DC808584C.jpeg I ordered 5 chicks from the farm store, they came from Hoover's Hatchery.
    These are the breeds/hybrids I ordered:
    -Brown Leghorn
    -Midnight Majesty Marans
    -Sapphire Gem
    -Prairie Bluebell Egger
    -Calico Princess
    The calico princess is easy, but the rest all look pretty similar. And none look like a brown leghorn (which is the whole reason I placed the chick order!).
    Am I right about the brown leghorn? Is it worth complaining to the store?

    Attaching pictures, some in comments to separate the different chicks.
    These are #1&2

    Did you get the right total? Did you specify no substitution? Sometimes underhatches occur so subs are made

    I did get the correct total. I did not specify no substitutions. Didn’t know I could do that. Thanks for the reply

    Was the order straight fro. Hatchery to you or were the chicks shipped to, unpacked at and repacked from the store? The latter makes it most likely the store botched things up
