    Greetings fellow BYCers!

    I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself -- I am in far West TX, and have just gotten my very first batch of chicks. I ordered 26 from MM, got one free exotic chick, lost 3 babies on the first night (poor little things). I am still trying to figure out what exactly I have in my flock, espeically since some of them died...

    I ordered the following breeds: Cuckoo Marans, Golden Laced Wyandottes, Easter Eggers, Dark Cornish, White-Laced Red Cornish, Plymouth Rocks, and Rhode Island Reds. I ordered 2 roosters, but it looks like i actually have four!

    Any helpful information on any of these breeds would be very welcome.

    Thanks everyone!
