    I live in central Connecticut. I recently got a surprise box from Cackle Hatchery containing 49 chicks and 3 ducks! I now have to figure out what I have!

    You're gonna need a really, really big brooder for them. Then when they are 6 weeks old you can take pictures of all of them and post at "what breed or gender is this?" It will keep them busy for weeks.

    Thanks so much! I've raised chicks before, but never this many at one time! It certainly is fun!

    Goodness, that's a lot! We don't even have that many birds total: chickens, ducks, and chicks.

    Well, welcome to BYC! And good luck!

    And I also have 5 Khaki Cambell Ducks! They're 1 1/2 years old.
    And I have meat rabbits as well!
