So sweet, and they look very healthy. How old when you got them? Please keep us posted on their development.
They arrived at the post office loading facility Saturday evening. I'm assuming that they had to have hatched on Friday. Unless they hatched Sat and they got them on a truck, and then a plane, from the mid west right away.
Years ago they were sent, surviving on their yolk sacks. There was very little mortality. Now, they are sent with a jell, which provides nutrients and moisture.
I had them picked up Sunday morning. They look so delicate and they do need to be babied, but yet they all are doing well. I can't wait to see how they develop.
They're beauties! I'm not a practiced chicken watcher, but I think I see a lot of differences between them.
Dominic, what breed (s) are they? Are they sexed? Cute little chickens.

They look beautiful. Please post their pictures again when they get a little older. I will love to see what kind of bird the chicks with strip from beak to neck make. I am also curious about one having strip arround the eye.
Does it look so red in there because of a heat lamp?
Yes, the heat lamp is red.
I like their description of the free bird--"rare exotic chick"! Makes you wonder. Enjoy your babies.
