They are SO CUTE!  Little fluffy chicks are the best!  I have a bantam just like your Chickletta.... and we thought Golden Laced, but now I am pretty sure she is a Partridge.  Come to think of it, our co-op got their bantams from either Ideal or Dunlap... so we might have seen some of the same breeds!  Can't wait to see what those two little feathered leg chicks turn out to be!

 

Oh, and yes, Easter Egger... and she is CUTE!

Ladynewtochicks.... her is my little Goldie (our bantam) when she was fist home... and then 1 week, and now at 2 weeks.

 

 

 


I am not upset, just amazed at how sure we were that she looked like a Golden Laced chick, and not like the Partridge ones we had seen, and what do ya know?!  She ends ups being a Partridge.

FUN!  Yea that pasty butt is annoying.  We ended up using some olive oil on their vents and it has seemed to really help it from reoccurring.

I have some of my own to show off. Since some of the chicks look identical, I'm just going to post each breed.

Okay, first I have five Salmon Faverolles that I got from the farm store. They apparently had a poo fight this morning, so please excuse the dirty feathers. Oh, and I think this one was a little greedy at the food dish...




Next I have two black Silkies. I have six white ones in my other brooder, so needed to add a little variety to that coop! So difficult to get a good photo of black animals...



And then we have a single supermodel blue Silkie. Total ham for the camera!





And now we get to today's shipment. Here's one of three Crested Cream Legbar pullets. One of them isn't doing so well right now...horrendous watery diarrhea. Trying to keep her hydrated and supplemented now, but it's not looking great. This lady however is larger than the others and doing great.




Here is a Crested Cream Legbar cockerel. Have two of these little guys. Had to show off his little yellow head dot.





And now we get into the rainbow assortment. These guys could be blue copper or splash marans, white/wheaten/black/blue/splash Ameraucana, or Olive Eggers. I've posted them on the breed ID forum to see what they have to say, but if you know, speak up!

Okay, have two of these guys. Black body, yellow belly, chocolate brown face.




This guy is the most amazing chocolate brown all over.




And this guy is a bit smaller, all black except for a small dot of yellow on its chin.


They are ALL SO PRETTY!!!

This is Maggie my 3 1/2 wk old Easter Egger looking very pretty so far 😊

Her sister Mae is the same age but looks totally different.
I am having an issue with her poo still being quite liquidy. She acts just as well as the others so should I be concerned?

Your Mae is going to look just like my Agatha....bet she was a mostly yellow chick with a small charcoal smudge or two at first, right?
