    [​IMG]

    Speckled Sussex, not sure which is staying but the other one is going home with the the other australorps thats spoken for. i THINK well be keeping the second one though, shes a little darker.

    and last but not least...
    fluffy feet.
    fluffy feet will not be staying, fluffy feet was our "free mystery chick", and the only one of the group not guarenteed to be a pullet (free = unsexed) looking at him hes the only one with no wing feather development, males develop feathers slower making me think hes a rooster...

    shame cause hes super cute
    [​IMG]


    HOWEVER...dads in love with fluffy feet lol.
    so, once the sussex and australorp go home...
    and these people are supposed to come tomorrow too, hopefully they will take the remainding 4...
    but when we were talking there also looking for easter eggers, so dads said, if they want to go part in on an order from the same place he would like us to get a couple of easter eggers and a couple of brahma :)

    yup, mr "ooo chicken for dinner" wants me to order more lol.
    he came in this morning to take a peek then called me an hour ago...
    hes like im looking at this picture...whats the little yellow ones, and the brown ones ect...lol
    then he said, "well now we have them all i dont want to get rid of any..." LMAO!
    so i told him, no we need to thin out the ones we have and if he still wants more we'll order some more of different breeds to bring us to the desired 8 hens lol

    i looked into MPC, but for 5 chicks it would have cost $60 with the shipping!
    so i ordered from healthychicksandmore.com, and it came to $55 for 12 chicks, shipping was FREE!

    im realy impressed, i was expecting at least some weaker chicks, mabe a doa, at the very lieast some pasty butt...but these guys are SUPER healthy looking.

    though they dont have any blue laced red wyandotes or polish which are 2 breeds i REALY want.
    im going to try and get some locally to round out the flock though :)

    the sussex are cute, my dad asked why there were chipmonks in the box when he first glanced in lol

    Who knew there were so many kinds of chickens?!? Shows what I know about country life. Or rural. Or semi-rural. Or whatever.
