    Ok so I got my chicks (YAY) on March 17th from a hatchery in the mail.
    I ordered
    2 NH's
    2 Buff Brahma's
    and 8 gold sex links

    I got
    3 pairs of something
    none of them are brahmas (no feathered feet)
    and 6 chicks that look alike who i will assume are the sex links.

    I dont even know what they 3 pairs are lol!!

    But I am concerned because I really wanted a NH...
    (i really wanted a brahma too but I am trying to get over that lol)

    So here is my favorite chick, there are 2, this one is nicer though lol

    PLEASE tell me it is a NH lol

    It looks like my RIR looked as a chick. I'm not really sure if a NH looks like that also though [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear they messed up your order ... they will most likely issue you replacements if they made a mistake... though some hatcheries have a 'substitution' option in case they are out of certain breeds..... do you remember if they did or not?

    Cute chickies [​IMG]

    It could very well be a NH [​IMG] I hope you got those at least! Any way the Brahmas just have little leg feathering??? Hatchery stock can sometimes differ a lot from the breed standard.

    Either way.... happy chick raising! [​IMG]

    Quote:No there is absolutely NO chicks with feathery legs [​IMG] maybe next year when I convince my husband that more is better!
    I am ok with whatever except i reaaaaaally wanted a NH
    they also sent the packing peanut roosters and i convinced him that we could keep one.
    He is a barred rock!!

    the others went up the street to a farm. (there were 7)
