Hens Pick Chicks

Received some of all 4 chick breeds and 2 extra. Chicks are doing well and getting feathers. The only thing that kept me from picking 5 stars is that I have no idea which chicks are what breed! It would help if chicks were marked. As landrace don't breed true I won't know by color. I would recommend your farm for healthy chicks.

We are sorry our chicks were not marked. If you send us pics, we can help you to identify.
