    Hello all,
    I got a phone call about 3:15 today from the post office and they said "I think we got a box of chickies for you". WOW I wasn't expecting them till tommorrow or Saturday. So I jump in the truck and drive like a "Bat out of H E double hockey sticks" to get to the post office to get them.
    He gives me the box and I had to sign for them and when I looked in the box they ALL were just fine. I tried to count them because I was just getting 9 replacements and 1 that I added to the list. I lost count because there were more than 15 in there so I had to wait till I got home to get them out of the box and put them in the brooder. There are 19 total. WOW.... It looks like I got 1 extra BO and the other 8 look to be either black australorps or SLW's. I'll find out in a couple weeks when they feather out.
    I am getting ready to leave right now to go to Tunica (Casino's) so I don't have time to post any pics tonight but when I get back tommorrow I will post some pics. I hope I hit a jackpot or two because I am STOAKED. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I am uploading pics right now to my photobucket and when they are done I will post them here. It's going to take a while due to this Dial-up.

    BTW I did win a $625.00 jackpot on the slot maching my first 30 minutes there [​IMG] , but in the end I didn't bring that whole amount home. [​IMG]

    After these pics posted I noticed the chick with the purple dot on it's head has darker colored legs. I never noticed that before, so maybe this (roo?) is some other breed? We'll see in about 10-14 days maybe.

    The other 2 pics will be the 9 SLW's ? I ordered 1 SLW and the other 8 are warmers but they all look the same to me at this point. I have heard that the warmers are usually a breed that you didn't order then you have to play the guessing game on what breed is this. So I don't know what to expect. All 9 of these have some black to their legs and my other 3 SLW chicks have no black in their legs.

    Am I going to have to play the what breed are they game on these?

    Way to go with the extra free peeps. If the darker legs are a willow color then you prolly have a easter egger.

    What hatchery did you order from? [​IMG]

    Beautiful chicks! But Im sorry to say I dont see any Silver Laced Wyandottes in that first pic. They look like all Black Australorps to me.
    Good Luck with them!
