    They arrived this morning!! ALL are healthy and happy! Not a single loss. There are 42 in all (I got 2 extras). 26 Easter Eggers, 5 Gold Sex Links, and 11 Cornish X.

    And, of course, pictures!...

    (this is not their brooder, I only put them in here for about 30 mins to take pics and make sure everyone was okay before I put them in their (big) outdoor brooder)

    Cute, cute, cute babies! I can't wait for mine to hatch!

    Out of all of my EE's I had a few white ones and they are all pullets!! And very beautiful too!

    Here's a pic I have of one of them already on my computer.

    Ohhh I LOVE my white EE pullet!

    And not all of the yellow EE chicks turn out to be white, I had 4 in an order and only 1 is white. The rest are a gorgeous gold and cream mx [​IMG]

    Love your new babies!

    Thanks guys! Okay maybe I shouldn't be so bummed about all the whities. It's just that I have a lot of White Leghorn hens, so, eh.
    This is my first time ordering SR... I am nervous about too many of them being boys! Now I wish I would have spend the extra money to get all pullets. *sigh* oh well.
