    Well, just got my and Taciturnitys order of baby chicks from Ideal today! [​IMG] They came in about six, and I would've posted then but i had to go to school. [​IMG]

    Here is what I ordered:

    3 Ameraucanas (Which are most likely easter eggers...)

    2 Blue Cochins

    1 Salmon Faverolle

    1 Black Langshan

    1 Buff Brahma

    1 Speckled Sussex

    And Taciturnity ordered:

    2 of the 5 Ameraucanas that are pictured above. You can see her babies and her brooder at - [​IMG]

    We ordered all pullets ^_^

    And here are our 6 free extras -


    I have a good idea that one is a pullet....but im going to do anouther post about them to see what all they are.

    Anyway, onward ^_^.

    They all came in great condition, the only problem was that One of the Ameraucanas and my Faverolle were cold. Other than that, everyone is doing fabulous! I couldnt be more happy - it makes me so eggstatic to have babies in the brooder again!!!!

    Here are some other pics -

    The Brooder Ah la Mansion, as I call it. That thing is 3-4ft tall! But will come in handy when all those chicks are still growing in the dead of winter!


    And here are some more pictures of the chicks -

    Very cute!
    I could be wrong, but I don't think that solid yellow chick is your buff brahma. Your buff would look more like the one you have marked as your Salmon Faverolle. Again, I could be wrong.
