    I emailed this picture over to the hatchery because my hubby and I knew that clearly the wrong birds were shipped to us!

    So these are my cute 8 week-old Buff Orpingtons! LOL [​IMG]

    The hatchery has offered to ship us the correct birds...but where in the heck will I go with 15 more birds-I'm waiting for my hubby to call me back and tell me what he would like to do...according to the chicken math; I'll have 15 Delawares within no time [​IMG]

    both good laying breeds, So here goes the chicken math, 30 birds, at least one will be a Roo, so you have fertilized eggs, and the buff orps will sit your eggs and hatch more babies that will hatch more and more and more and more and more and more babies, and more eggs! = ]
