    they are: 16 slow growing cornish (for meat - how am i supposed to eat these?![​IMG]) 2 EE pullets, 2 EE roos, 2 Maran pullets(do not like to be picked up), 1 turken pullet(the cutest!), 1 SF pullet, 2 BO pullets and1 welsummer (i love her). they came from welp - shipped on monday from new mexico and were here today, so not bad transit time. thanks everyone for all the advice i have received and i am sure i will need much more along the way! now, back to my chicks![​IMG]

    Aren't they fun to watch? My kids said it was better than TV. Quite a compliment! Enjoy
