    Hi everyone [​IMG]

    We've been wanting to get some egg chickens for a long time and finally got our first chicks on the 6th. We ordered 3 black australorps, 3 buff orpingtons, and 3 easter egger pullets. So far so good, everyone is doing great and they grow so fast!

    Anyways here's some pics of our babies from the first day we got them to today. The hatchery threw in 8 extras (thinking RIRs) which I've given to a friend.

    2 weeks old (mostly black australorps looks like a boy to me already, comb is large compared to the others)
