    Thought they were going to be standard chicks as I asked what I might receive & was told RIRs, Sexlinks, etc.

    I ended up with Iowa Blues, Egyptian Fayoumis, BBR Kraienkoppe, Red Leghorns, & Buff Rocks!!
    They all look healthy!!!

    Quote:Unfortunately it was a S/R surprise, but it was supposed to be standard fowl. Not sure what I should do with them all. They DID put on the packing slip what was included. I loved that that was there or I never would have guessed what they were : )

    Wow! That's a really cool mix. I'm glad their email didn't have more details, or I might have been too tempted to get more chickens that I don't have room for.
