I did a bad. 馃樁

I ordered chicks on February 25th. They got here yesterday.

I ordered
6 Ameraucanas
1 Bantam Cochin
and 1 OEGB.

They gave an extra Ameraucana. Unfortunately 5 of the now 7 Ameraucanas didn't make the trip.

So I ended up with the OEGB, the cochin, and two Ameraucanas.

They're pretty darn cute.

I'm hoping they're good. The cochin has fluff all the way up the middle toe, unlike most hatchery birds. So that's a good sign. And the lavender Ameraucana has nice dark legs already, so 馃

I am suspicious the bantam cochin is a cockerel. Time will tell. He just gives my those vibes. We'll know in a few months.

I'm undecided if I will candle today. Usually candle every day, but it's only day two so I doubt I would see any development.

Look at those cuties! 馃槏 So sorry you lost some on the way, though, that's always tough. 鉂

And quail babies on the way! How exciting!! Those celadon eggs are so gorgeous!

Give it time on the bantam Cochin, but yeah, sometimes they can be apparent from the get-go. :confused: The combs usually pop pretty quick on the boys, so you should know soon enough.
