    Thankyou ! That’s a Houdan. I had two of them but one passed away an hour after picking them up, probably due to shipping and stress.

    Aww, I’m sorry to hear that. :hugs That’s too bad.

    I ordered some more of the Houdans for March because they’re so adorable and quirky and I wanted more then just one. I also ordered some speckled Sussex. I’ve never had the speckled Sussex but I am definitely intrigued by thier mottled colouring and they seem like a good egg laying breed for a small backyard flock. I don’t need too many eggs and I still wanted to get some Polish because I love thier look. Sorry a bit long winded but chicks make me happy.:D
    Hoping your next batch of chicks survives. I’ve heard that sometimes it’s better to wait for warmer temperatures so shipping is less stressful (or ask for additional heat packets).

    Aloha OR
    This totally made my night!
    Chicks are the best de-stresser.
    The white one is also my fave. What a personality! :jumpy:jumpy:jumpy
