    I'm waiting for my very first hatchery order, which is shipping from Welp in New Mexico. They're due to ship Wednesday and hopefully will be here by Friday.

    I ordered so many different breeds/colors, I don't know how I'm going to tell my 26 chicks from the 7 ordered for someone else.

    My order;
    1 Gold Laced Wyandotte (I already have 1)
    3 Silver Laced Wyandottes
    2 Blue Wyandottes
    2 Buff Wyandottes
    2 Gold Lakenvelders
    2 Silver Lakenvelders
    3 Welsummers
    3 Ameraucanas
    2 Blue Andalusian
    3 Speckled Sussex
    3 Barred Rocks

    I have plenty to do to keep busy until Friday, but the wait is still hard. [​IMG] I just hope I don't get an e-mail from Welp Wednesday saying this or that breed or color isn't available. [​IMG]

    I would love some more, but this late in the game makes it too cold to deal with. Here in Va. the a.m.'s are already cold and I have raynoids meaning my blood does not pump to far extremeties so I suffer in the cold weather. It's hard enough just to be able to go out and break the water for the 80 some that I do have...but it's worth it in the warmer months.

    That is a great mix of birds! (and no.. I would be no help in sorting out which baby chick is which, sorry.)

    I am waiting for an order but not sure what or when quite yet. I will be brooding 8 chicks for one of my co-workers. She hasn't placed the order yet. I think she is looking at Speckled Sussex and Columbian Wyandote, though.

    I'm waiting for an order as well. I placed an order this weekend through Ideal Hatchery. They have an October sale going on, 25+ assortment of bantam chicks for only .99 each. So we are hoping to get a good variety. It was only about $35 total with shipping and everything. I am so excited I love getting random chicks and playing the guessing breeds game.

    I ordered from Welp a few weeks ago. The box the chicks were shipped in had separations and stickers of who was in each section.

    I have an order coming in from Ideal next week! Can't wait, I ordered 10 of the feather footed and 15 of the Ameraucana's. I hope I get blue eggs out of the deal. I've been taking my extra eggs to work and they're just crazy about the colors, I can't wait to introduce blue eggs to them. [​IMG]
