|Silver Laced Wyandotte (gray striped) and|
Speckled Sussex (brown striped) chicks.
The only problem, they were two days early! Based on a hatch calendar, I ordered Monday hatched chicks to arrive on Wednesday. This kinda messes up my schedule because I gave Mama Buff her eggs based on a Wednesday arrival and Thursday home hatch day. Oh well.
I got 8 Silver Laced Wyandottes (Dan's choice) and 8 Speckled Sussex (my choice). We got a bonus, free, exotic rare breed chick for ordering. I believe it's the mostly black one in the lower right-hand corner of the above photo. No telling what it is.
The chicks are all healthy, except for one splayed leg. I used the treatment at PoultryHelp.com for Spraddle Legs. I don't anticipate any problems with it correcting itself.
There's nothing cuter than baby chicks, is there? Except maybe baby goats!
