    I have never ordered chicks through the mail before. Ordered 7 of the new Super Blue Egg layers from My Pet Chicken. All arrived alive, though one is smaller than the others and a bit wobbly right now. Packing was very nice. All are eating and I have seen most of them drink as well.

    Supposed to be all females. Paid a chunk of change for them so I hope so. They just seemed like a good thing when I saw them advertised. A few of them already have black spots. Hope it's not Sharpie marker LOL. :) This cross is totally new to me (as well as MPC). Will try to update the post so others can see how they progress.

    Hopefully all your girls are looking like girls so far!
    Mine are now almost 16 weeks and are just over 2.5lbs.
    (I've got a mixed breed cockerel that is 2lbs at 6 1/2 weeks, so the SBEL girls seem tiny)

    All are doing great. Still too soon to tell boys from girls though I think. All were supposed to be girls anyway. 7 of these and 6 EEs that I bought as Americaunas. :( Oh well.

    The front two look like our females. The one peeking around the corner on the left is a little suspicious... just a little.
    If you do get cockerels from your all girl group, remember to file a claim- they will refund your $$ for any mis-sexed individuals.
