    [​IMG] Hi guys, i just received my new chicks ever today from Ideal, im soo happy. Something happen though...it was pretty funny but scarey....i didnt even know or think i was going to receive the chicks today at all because someone from Ideal told me that they would be here most likely thursday or friday morning. But while i was upstairs i heard the doorbell ring and my mom answered it. All of a sudden my younger sister was screaming the chicks are here!!! the chicks are here!! at first my other younger sister and I thought she was bluffing but it turned out it was true. A postman came to drop off the chicks because they said they called my phone number so that I can go pick them up but no one answered which is weired because i never heard a ring.....but thank God we were at home and the postman came to drop them off.

    They all got here healthy and sound. I got them all marked to tell each of them apart....

    1. Three amerecauna females(easter eggers i think everyone calls them)
    (one with designs, one that is dark brown, and one believe it or not yellow but i can tell the difference from the cornish crosses and white rocks...is this color common in amerecaunas, and what would its color be once it is older?

    2. Three Golden comet females

    5. Two cornish crosses female and one cornish cross male

    Ameracauna from ideal can be any color, but I'm guessing you might have gotten a white one. My favorite.
