My chicks arrived from Ideal on November 1st! They shipped on October 31st. The post office called me and asked me if I was expecting a peeping package. They got quite a lot of attention at the post office. I ordered 16 chicks, and gave 8 to a local family, because I don't have room for 16. Here are pictures! The whole kaboodle Wading in the water dish My Babies What is this stuff? Do we eat it? My Eight Sleeping Late As you can see in the last pic I have 2 each of White Leghorn, Production Red, Barred Rock and Ameracauna. They are supposed to all be pullets, but I know sexing is only about 95% accurate, so i think one of the Ameracaunas might be a roo. This chick is developing very striking markings on the face, and the other Ameracauna is not. The Ameracaunas seem quite bossy! One of them (the one I mention above) seems to be the boss. I call her "Miss Thing" for now.
