10 days ago, I ordered 25 jumbo Cornish cross chicks from McMurray hatchery. We've never ordered chicks through the mail, so this was a fun new experience. In my order they also included an extra freebie, "a special rare chicken". We'll let it grow and feather out, then it will join the laying flock, and wait to see what kind of surprise chicken we got. They also included 3 extra chicks, possibly in case a few died in transport. Well, I'm happy to say they're all alive and thriving.
You can see my surprise chicken is the only black one in the bunch.
