    at Ideal- Assorted Straight run bantams for $1.00 each! I got 25 on the way. I figure when i get rid of all the roos I will probably have a few pullets left. Just what I wanted!

    So my chicks arrived on Friday morning. They sent 27 but 7 were DOA. 3 were near death and died in the first hour. 7 more died in the next 12 hours. Now I have 10 Very pretty healthy chicks. The lady from Ideal called me back today and said she would sent me another 17 chicks on Wednesday. There is one that I have absolutely no clue as to what it is so Im going to post a pic to see if any of you know. I know how you all love playing "guess that chick" [​IMG] Thats the funnest part about assorted specials, seeing whatcha end up with.

    Awwwwww, so sorry to hear about the babies that didn't make it. I'm always sad when I hear those stories. I hope that the others that they are sending will all arrive healthy and happy. [​IMG]

    Post pics when you can.

    I think i have two sets of twins. The ones that are pictured together. My only good guess is the white one is a white cochin and the silver one with a red eye is either a cornish or a OEGB. What do yall think?

    Quote:I agree with your cochin assessment, but I can't tell with the others. Some of them have white legs, so they could be Old English; the brown chipmunky kind of colored ones at the bottom look a bit like my Spangled Old English did when she was a chick. The only other chick coloration I'm familiar with in Old English is Quail, but any of the white-legged, single-combed ones may be Old English. I'd be tempted to call the one with the black stripes all over its face a bantam EE because of its leg coloring, but it doesn't have a beard, so that's probably not what it is. Sorry I wasn't that helpful. [​IMG]

    The only thing I can tell for sure is that you don't have any Silkies or Polish, which I'm sure you already knew. [​IMG]
