    Well our of the 15 I ordered from Boondockers I have 11 left. 1 was DOA, 1 died the first night, 1 was runty, not growing and died at a week old, 1 got a hurt leg and I was unable to nurse him back to health [​IMG] I do have another one with a hurt foot but she is doing better and should be back with the flock soon. Time for pics (please ignore our junk pile) [​IMG]

    Here they are!

    Lol, that explains it. The furry one outside the pen has correct markings, but some funny feathers for an ancona. [​IMG]
