    I thought I would try to learn uploading. These came today. Blacks are Australorps the reds are Speckled Sussex. They are hatchery stock but they will provide us with eggs and fun.

    Not a dang thing wrong with hatchery birds to provide a nice, productive backyard flock.

    Enjoy your chicks. [​IMG]

    I mean, don't get me wrong... breeder birds are nice. I have a few. But I also have hatchery stock and offspring of hatchery stock & they are happy, healthy members of my backyard flock.

    Those are the cutest little chicks, enjoy. I was specific when I ordered my chicks but both my dogs and all my cats,( except the one I found at the side of the road) come from the pound, mutts, all of them and I couldn't love them more if they were expensive purebreds. Sit back and let the love flow.[​IMG]

    They are adorable. My BA used to lay a few triple yolkers when she was young. My SS banty was my one of my favorite little hens. I can't wait to get mutts,, but I mean real mutts, when my rooster and my hens do their own thing. I am ordering a new rooster this year. As much as my banty thinks he is getting my EE hens, he's not (don't tell him, lol). I have had 2 batches of rotten non fertilized eggs!! Have fun. You are going to be swimmin in poop there pretty soon! haha
