On November 11th our chicks arrived. We ordered 16 chicks from Ideal Hatchery. The order was for 5 Rhode Island Reds (4 females, 1 male), 5 Araucana's, (4 females, 1 male) and 3 Golden Sebright Bantums Straight Run (which means we get what they send), 3 Mille Fleur Bantums, Straight Run. They were shipped on the 10th and arrived bright and early on the 11th. I went to the post office and picked them up and brought them home. Unfortunately 2 of the bantums died. One was a Mille Fleur and one was a Golden Sebright. I have taken pics of them all, I just have to go and get them developed. The rest of the little chicks are doing well. They are all growing well and are very much full of energy!
