    I did get my new shipment of peeps, all arrived safe and sound. I thought I would share some pics of the babies that survived the 5 day trip through the mail;

    In case anyone is wondering, there is a Silver Laced Standard cochin pullet there, a welsummer roo, two welsummer pullets, a SL Wyandotte roo, SL Wyandotte pullet, 3 Cuckoo Marans pullets, A Blue Wyandotte roo, and two blue wyandotte pullets. All 3 of those roos were supposed to be pullets... I did order two Blue Wyandotte cockerals, but they were DOA. (they were marked) I sure hope my replacement order is better on the sexing! I have two marked blue wyandotte roos, and we will see how many of those pullets develope large wattles. Lets see, out of the origonal order, they're sexing accuracy was 90%

    Thanks!! LOL- No, I could have worded that better. These guys were shipped as day olds, got lost in the mail and I got them on day 5. These are the twelve survivors from that box. ( they are 5 weeks old now) The other 19 were DOA. The hatchery sent me a new order, I got those last week. [​IMG]

    Thanks- they are going through that fugley juvenille stage! LOL But I think they are gorgeous anyway... [​IMG] Yes, its amazing these guys survived, a few were still dying when I picked them up, the rest were standing on the dead cheeping their heads off- and that box STUNK. I was frantic, p*ssed off and heartbroken. :thun

    The Silver Laced Roo that looks like he's going to climb in my hand ( he does, all the time) jumps in my hand, and tries to peck me in the eye. [​IMG] He's quite the character, he has been since he was a fluff ball. He's so friendly. [​IMG]

    It's funny how their personalities come out, even at a young age!! [​IMG] I can't have any roos (neighbors may complain). I'm really worried that some of the chicks I'm getting so attached to are roos! [​IMG]

    I posted pix but it may be too early to tell. [​IMG]
