    It was only 9 degrees this morning when I went to get them, We did have a few dead but It was just so cold and it seemed like the littlest ones so. Pretty sad about that but everyone else is doing great so far.

    I am in PA and that is very cold for us. The others seem fine 3 were DOA and one was barley breathing I tried but all I could do was hold it closeto me while it passed. I even took a blanket to the post office and wrapped the box till I got to the car. The ones that passed seemed to be the smallest ones of the bunch.

    Okay I will give it a shot;

    If the black have gray legs, pink feet, and white wings coming in they are Australorps, if they have yellow legs and white edging on the wings they are BRs, and if they have black beaks they are probably black stars.

    The gray and white chick in the bottom left looks like a Colombian Wyandotte, does she have a straight or pea comb?
    The gray one in the top left looks like a White giant.

    The dark red one in the center looks like a Partridge rock, and right above it I think is a silver laced wyandotte.
    The one with her head behind the thermometer looks like a Sussex.
