Yep! The gold one from the Valentine hatch was the exception, but she was one of a pair that were pretty much identical. I kept one, and you got the other. I kept my big yellow girl, because I just had to see how she would turn out. Tweety is now 12 weeks old, and bigger than some of my mature hens. She's the size I'm aiming for.

With the Easter hatch, as gorgeous as the silver girls are, I just can't afford the coop space they would take up. I need the space for the keepers form the next couple batches of chicks. And I already have 4 solid black hens, and plenty of barred girls. The red cockerel was the biggest chick to hatch, and he is exactly the right coloring I need to move forward. Plus, he's the only little boy that gets out of my way, and recognizes my authority. The other two are little jerks and one boy, not pictured, was taken by coon.
