    Just had to share some pictures of my morning... My order from McMurray Hatchery is in. I ordered 12 Speckled Sussex, 6 Columbian Wyandottes, 7 Pearl White Leghorns (of which there are actually 8, they sent an extra. And then the rare chick that I now think is a Sultan. All chicks alive and seem to be doing well. As I was unboxing them I had one that was not patient enough for me to grab her and get her a drink. Oh no, she bounced on out of the box, right next to the waterer, and promptly took a drink on her own. No need to catch her or dip her beak. Sheesh, independent type! So they made it just fine to North Dakota where our temp this morning is 32 degrees when I picked them up. Will TRY to remember to update this thread when they are all grown up to let you see how they turned out.

    Ok, now I've been to McMurray's website and realize that the rare chick is a Faverolle, not a Sultan. Cool. Now I'd love for it to be a hen but...but...yeah it's probably a rooster!
