    I got my box of chicks from Mcmurray's today! My original order was for 30 chicks.
    4 SLW hens
    4 Buff O hens
    4 EE hens
    2 Speckled Sussex hens
    1 SLW roo
    10 Red Rangers Broilers st. run
    5 Cornish X st. run
    1 Free Rare Chick

    I opened my box and found 3 dead chicks. One pastey butt, one pecked, and one runt. I believe I lost a BO and 2 cornish x. I had no other casualties or pastey butts. I'm using one waterer with nutri-drench, the other with quik chick and sugar. I gave them some grow gel too. They are eating, drinking, flying, peeping, sleeping, pooping, and more. They are thriving and I'm loving it! So far so good! I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I ended up getting one free extra SLW male and a couple of male red stars. Those were on top of my original order!

    Yay! How exciting. I can't wait for our shipment. I'm glad to hear they are all doing so well (other than the three you lost). Excited to see more pictures!

    Congrats getting mine from them next week. I have a question do they always give you a free chick or do you have to order a certain amount of chicks.

    I think as long as you order 25 you get a freebie. I love the way wyandottes look. I hope they continue to thrive

    When you check out at McMurray there's an option to get a free chick. It is automatically checked, so you'd have to uncheck it not to get one. I ordered their minimum, which is 25, and was offered the free chick.

    I would love to add a blue laced red wyandotte to my flock. When I ordered, they were very limited available. :(
