    I had a mistaken box of chicks come last Friday: 16 burbon red poults, 5 blue slate poults, 11 doms (straight run), 17 black tailed white Japanese bantams. The next Wednesday my correct pullet order came in: 5 doms, 6 cuckoo marans (one cockeral), 6 EE's (one cockeral), 5 australorps, 5 BO, 25 RIR. I sold: 25 RIR, 6 Japanese bantams, 2 blue slates, 8 burbon reds, 7 doms (1st batch). One burbon red poult died (one more will have to be culled), 2 bantams were DOA, two more died the 1st night. Here are the pics of the chicks:

    The too tall BTW Japanese in front looks like the ring leader [​IMG]

    We named the silver EE that is to the left Phyllis (Diller) b/c she has crazy fluffy "hair"

    So adorable! That's enough chicks to keep you out of trouble for a while! [​IMG]

    Question: Why are the doms marked with red? Just for hatchery ID?
