    Gordie mailed these on Monday afternoon, the post office called me @ 7:00 a.m. When they got in their new home, they were powerful thirsty, the hungry, then sleepy. They are Welsummers, Cuckoo Marans, Black Penedesencas and I think 1 Ameracauna. 20 in all? I had to run to work, can't wait to get home.

    10:00 p.m. I had one of my Welsummer girls die just now. She was fine an hour ago. She seemed happy and healthy, what happens when this happens? Was the stress of the trip to much, was something genetically wrong perhaps?[​IMG]

    They all have feathers so they are not day olds, or even 3 day olds. They are different sizes as well, so I'm not sure, doesn't really matter they all appear healthy. I can even spot a roo a mile away now....so, interesting to see if they pan out to be what i have them pegged to be in the first 15 minutes with them. Can't wait to get home, working gets in the way of real life. I'll post more photos tonight,[​IMG] too.
