    What do you see? What breeds did I get? These are the McMurray Brown Egg Layer Pullet Assortment. I ordered 100 pullets, 1 SLW Roo and they supposedly sent me a free Rare Breed chick. I have no idea who is whom. I did find 3 NN's One black and two yellow.

    The first one is a Nacked Neck, I can only tell because he has not feathers on neck. The others I have no idea. Do you have a better quality camera you can take pics with. Those are a little blurry. [​IMG]

    I've never ordered live chicks by mail, they all survived the trip?
    Recieving eggs via mail isn't nearly as exciting haha [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, All I have to take pics with is my phone. I received 3 NN...2 yellow and one black. I think I got some SLW and RIR...but beyond that, I don't know what's in there. They are all so cute.

    I ordered 101,... received 109 with 1 DOA. I am Happy!!! They all seem lively and strong. This is my first mail order experience. The waiting has been just awful! My DH ordered these for my Christmas present. I am a happy lady!

    30 years ago today... I was a human mommy for the first time. This is a VERY special day for deliveries!!!!

    I got 25 chicks from McMurray, with one free. They were all alive when we got them, but one died the first day. All the rest are now 11 weeks old and doing great!

    I see at least a couple of EE chicks in there, one or two that look like BO babies, and the rest.... I think you're gonna have to wait until they get older.

    Good luck and it looks like a fun bunch! I can't wait to have more land so I can do something like that.

    OMG you lucky lady!!! 100 chicks!! [​IMG] I'm so jealous!!

    I hope you got some Australorps in there. They are my absolute favorite!! They would be black, with some creamy white on their chests and faces. Then they change to solid black. They are great brown egg layers, and very friendly/ cuddly.
