Well there was a mix up with Ideal because I got 7 extra males. It was 8 but one didn't make it. Least it wasn't one of my girls but still sad. Anyway I got pics to share. My camera isn't the greatest. I have 9 EE and 2 australorps. Any clue at what all the little brown males are?

So far they all look strong. No pasty butts.

Everyone made it through the night!

I am so addicted.

How often should I change toweling? I have been once in the evening and once in the morning. Is that enough for 17 chicks?
