    Okay so this is the second time we've ordered chicks from Cackle Hatchery. We ordered 15, and received 18, just like last time when we ordered the Assorted Bantam Special. The chicks arrived on March 23rd. Within 4 days we lost 5 chicks from unknown causes. Now they are 9 days old and everybody seems healthy so I am happy. They are on Electrolytes and Probiotics just in case. I currenly have 2 Dark Grey, 1 Black, 1 Light Grey, 1 Chipmunk, 4 White, and 4 Yellow. I lost 2 Dark Grey, 2 Yellow, and 1 White. Here are the healthy ones :D

    Thanks! I think they look like little eagles -- I cant wait to see what they look like big. I am most excited about the light grey one and the chipmunk one. They will be the most unique since I only got one of each :)

    Cute chicks and sorry for your loss on the 5. Do you have any updated pics and did they turn out to be bantam size? (I saw you posted about size in another thread.)

    My Cackle order came April 8th, and I was worried because of the cold weather, but all arrived (47 when 40 ordered!) in good shape and are doing fine. I also got bantams, EE's, Belgian d'Uccles, and buff Brahmas. Too cute! Mary

    I have the day off tomorrow so I will do updated pictures becasue they have changed like crazy. And no, they are definately fullsize chicks. I hatched some of my own bantams chicks out and they were so small compared to these guys it was laughable. Im bummebr i didnt get bantams like I ordered, but I am happy I got some easter eggers :)

    Mine from Cackle vary in size; now almost three weeks old, and some look pretty large! Mary
