    Pictures #3 & 4 appear to be two ameracaunas and perhaps a black shamo roo. What mixture did you order?

    You definitely have some barred rocks and some EEs. What a great bunch of chicks and yeah... you are gonna need a much larger brooder!

    I dont think I should have any barred rocks in there.

    I ordered

    Old English (6)
    Frizzles (10)
    Silkies (10)
    Cuckoo Marans (10)
    Assorted feather legged st. Run (6) -the unknown birds
    I did order some Americaunas, (only 6) and I thought I seperated those out along with the golden phoenix and gave those to my friend who wanted them......so I surely hope there are no americaunas in there. they all have feathered feet in there except the 4 (what I am guessing) are the old english.

    I lost a total of 8 chicks either en route from the hatchery or with in a few hours of them arriving at my house...

    I looked on thier site on the possibilities of what I could get in my assortments of fearthered feet chicks and they said

    d'uccles, brahmas, silkies, frizzles and cochins does that help guess?


    OH before I forget I did pick up 6 chicks from the feed store also and that is the black bodied yellow headed guy.. and I think I grabbed two buff brahmas and 2 white silkies...
