Hehehe yeah Tiny actually looks worse today than he did then. Poor dude!
yeah that ship is everything!I did a bad. 😶
I ordered chicks on February 25th. They got here yesterday.
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.

We'll see. Right now the white one is looking pretty good, excited to see them grow out so I can get a look at her posture, and stance, and whatnot. I'm sure she won't be perfect, as she's a hatchery bird. But as far as hatcheries go Cackle is as good as they come. Hopefully she'll be a good starting place though.the third has SUCH PRETTY coloring! The white mixed with those hints of gray is show-worthy.
Yeah, I love the white one. She just looks so clean and is such a nice contrast against all my other birds. The lavender one is sweet, but I am just NOT fond of her shredding. That's what happens when you get lavender birds from hatchery.OK, need pics of the Italians and Fabs. I've got Pharaohs and Tuxedos.
I can't decide if I want the bird in the first pic or the one in the third. I've always been partial to white birds but pastels also get my attention.
Actually feather issues exist for lavenders from private breeders too. Especially with Silkies.Yeah, I love the white one.

Oh, I'm aware. It's probably the biggest struggle when dealing with lavender. But it gets especially bad in hatchery birds, since they aren't nearly as picky and intense on their breeders. Honestly I don't think I have ever seen a lavender bird without shredding.Actually feather issues exist for lavenders from private breeders too. Especially with Silkies.
If you have pics I'd love to see her!I'm fond of Legbars as well! I had one years ago, before Meyer's even got them in, named Poppy. I honestly don't remember how her egg color was, though. My current girl, Harriet, has a much larger crest than I would prefer, but she's such a sweetheart, if a little sketchy at times if you approach her from the wrong angle.
