Welp came through!!! All Alive and peeping!!! Pics added

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by equine chick, May 21, 2008.

  1. I got a call from the depot po at 130 am, my chicks were here! unfortunately dh was at work and could not pick them up til this am since I was home with our niece who lives with us, she is 9. No I was not going to wake her up then. She said there were 4 orders here and making a commotion. I could hear them in the background. I got there at 6am and picked up my chicks they are all alive and well. All 42 of them. One or two had been pecked at but they were not bad at all and our happy in their new home. I will download pics later. Who is who I can't tell except for the rir's. They sent 4 extra(yellows) and is homing with my recent hatched marans and jerseys.

    Oh so lucky!!!! I'm trying to find some chicks to order to add to the 12 I got this week ( and my possible hatches!) but most everyone is sold out! Did you have to order well in advance?

    What did you order?

    My 12 assorted brown egg layers appear to be all some sort of red sexlink. They are good layers but I kind of like a mixed up flock.

    That must be the trick...specify what you want.

    This was the only time I didn't go with Ideal for chickens and they mix things up nicely. Ideal just didn't have blue wyandottes.

    I didn't order any roos. Hope there is no mistakes but a blue wyandotte roo wouldn't be totally unwelcome.
