    Hi Everyone!

    I posted another thread about my VERY bad luck with the shipment I got today... I ordered 25 chicks and only 10 were alive in the box [​IMG] These are my first chickens too [​IMG]

    These are the ones who survived... Any guesses on their breeds? I ordered EE's (which I think all died), a Brown Leghorn Roo and a Lakenvelder Roo... The rest were a mix of brown and white egg layers... so they could be anything!!

    THANKS!!

    These are a little redder and have a defined triangle sort of blaze...

    I dunno.... chubby cheeks can often be a sign of a muffed variety... maybe chubby cheeks is one of your EE's

    edited... looking at those legs though, even though they don't always have green legs... I'm gonna change my mind [​IMG] Those Black and white ones are adorable though!

    The black ones look like Black Giants.
    Are the 2 last pics the same chick?

    Yes, the last two are the same chick.. but the one with the dots on her head looks alot like that one too... they both have those chubby cheeks...

    I don't think Welp carries Black Giant.. they have BRs, Black Sex Link, Black Astrolorp.. and a bunch of other less commons...

    I was looking at the hatchery website and I think the black ones are Black Astralorps... They have the closest markings to the black chickens on their site.. still boggled on the others... I'm hoping the chubby cheeked ones are the EE's!!

    BTW: NEVER google "Black Chicks"... you won't get what you're expecting!!!
