Here's the little box the chicks came in.
I ordered 7 Americana/Arcana Chicks that lay "Easter Egg" eggs, they're any shade of green and blue, very pretty eggs. These chickens are very good for cold weather as their comb's are "rose combs".
I also got 7 Rhode Island Red's. These lay brown eggs, and are very good layers, not broody (hopefully) and pretty forgiving of cold weather.
I wanted to try something different so I got two Black Sex Link chick's they are bred just to tell if they are male or female when they hatch. They also lay pretty brown eggs. They are also pretty heavy and have good feed to waste ratio. :)
