    Hi everyone, just got my hatchery surprise from Cackle this morning and finally have some time to post some pictures of the fuzzies. I have no idea what these little ones are so if you have any ideas please let me know.

    I think the ducks are either mallards or rouens and number 10 I think is a bronze broad breasted or naragansett turkey, but not too sure. I am not even sure if I took pictures of all the varieties of chicks, I am color blind so I just picked ones that I thought represented a group that looked alike, lol. There are over 40 of them that survived the trip. I am really happy with the chicks, but kind of wish I received some more egg laying machines. How are cochins and brahmas as far as laying?

    Cochins are known for being broody. IDK on brahmas.

    I didn't even think of turkey, you could post it under the turkey thread and see if they know?
    Same with the duck, but it might be to early to tell.
