Very Happy!!I just received my collection of Ornamental Layer Chicks along with the free chicks. Everybody was peeping away and happy. They are eating and drinking and all look super healthy. I ordered 24 chicks and selected the free chick as well and received 2 Rare and Exotics! One Golden Laced Polish and One Mottled Cochin. I have spent all morning identifying the other chicks and here is the breakdown:
Buff laced Polish - 5
Golden Campine - 2
Brown Leghorn - 9 (May be a mix of S.C. and R.C.)
Golden Buff - 2
Lakenvelder - 2
Fayoumi - 3
White Faced Spanish - 2
Well that adds up to 27 chicks!! We are overjoyed with our batch and cannot wait to show the kids when they get home from school!!
Ornamental LayersI was really excited when I got my babies in March, now not happy at all. All of the 15 chickens are game birds, and four are roosters. So much for sexing. The one rooster that I ordered, the Golden Phoenix died, not sure why. I will not be purchasing any more birds.
