    We ended up Ordering From Meyer Hatchery. Here is what we ordered. 2 easter egger hens, 15 leann's adopt me bargain, 1 free meyer meal maker, and they are giving us another chick for free. Cant wait to see what we get in our adopt me bargain crossing my fingers [​IMG] for atleast 6 hens. The brooder is set up and ready to go! Has anyone ordered the Leann's adopt me bargain before?

    I have not, it is good to get those just to keep other chicks warm. good luck. love mystery chicks. I hatched out these chicks were all mystery eggs.[​IMG]
    I did know the EE/RIR were going to be but not how they would look, The CoCc marans chicks I knew would be black, I hatched out those chicks before, the dad was CCM but the moms were all different.

    dip their beak in egg yolk mixed with water they have been living on their egg yolk last few days it is good for them, and alittle sugar in their water.
