Hi, The chicks had a ruff time in shipping. They were delayed an extra day in shipping; they shipped on Wed. and arrived on Sat. We lost some due to the stress and length of transit. There were 45 total between 8 of us, so most survived. I am keeping 8. It was a group order. I didn't keep exactly what I had ordered. I had ordered 2 red sexlinked, 2 barred rock, 2 black australorps, and 2 easter eggers. Due to the losses, I ended up with 1 RS, 2 BA, 3 BR, and 2 EE. Here are pics of my new little ones.
