    Got eight types of birds last sunday-2/28 from post office. Had a turken with issues on arrival didn't make it. Based on his shape then did not think he would. Had another one that is doing fine.
    since then I lost three. Out of what was ordered they are frizzle cochins or golden laced.
    Could They be passing just due to they are smaller then everyone else with them or could it be with that breed?
    should I figure out a way to saperate based on growth patterns?

    for sp and understanding
