When you open the box...one dozen assorted chicks! One day old. They are all huddled together (the white pad is a tiny warm pack) and peeping, so you have to quickly scoop them into a nice clean warm box with food and mostly water.
There are 4 white leghorn chicks (the classic easter chick looking chicks) 4 assorted silkies (the teeny fluffy ones with teeny fluffy bits on their feet ooooooooooo I wanted to pop them in my mouth they were soooo cute!), 2 buff orpingtons (larger carmel colored fluff balls) and 2 ameraucnas (one dark and one light, they lay the blueish eggs). The leghorns and the silkies left my care last night for their proper home.
I am left with four teeny ones, which brings my chicken total to 8.
