    We ordered 8 chicks from ideal. And they sent us 16 :) Of course I'm loving them now, because they are teeney tiny...but I just don't have room for this many. I know I'm going to have to wait until they're at least a month to sex them...

    Does anyone even have an idea of what breeds they sent me?
    I ordered:
    1 Black sex link
    1 Australorp
    1 White laced wyandotte
    1 Gold laced wyandotte
    2 Easter Eggers
    1 White plymouth rock
    1 Buff orp.

    I know which are the black and white ones - but the rest are just a jumble of adorableness. And 2 of them have feathered legs...

    Aren't they beautiful? :) :)

    Cuties!!! Looks like a lot of extra EE's and maybe sussex and might have cochins, brahmas, marans, maybe silkies, but don't see any that small.... yeah for the babies!

    could be EEs could be brown leghorns. I was sold an EE that turned out to be a brown leghorn before. But I also bought a white orpington that turned out to be an EE. So, who knows. Cuties though

    Thanks for the ideas, guys. We will have to wait and see. I don't know what we're going to do with them in a month when they're getting big and feisty, but we'll figure it out :)
