Anyway I saw the 10 day old NN's and fell in love with their bald little heads and 2 just happened to jump into the box with the Brahmas. A black and a yellow/buff. So i have been lurking on this thread since then looking at all the beautiful pics you all have posted.
I am at page 232 of this thread. Not a great photo, no one wanted to be photogenic today. They are almost 4 weeks now and are the sweetest things. I wish I had got a few more now. This is an awesome thread.
Aren't NNs AWESOME??!!
In other news, Apoc went after my boot today when changing his water - he needed a (gentle) kick to stop. Things are not looking good for him. He may be dinner soon - but I've not been injured yet, and he's been cooped up, so I'm going to give him a little longer and a couple more chances... Snape is starting be a PIA as well, but I'm chalking it up to crazy spring behavior (which is why Apoc gets another chance).
BUT BUT BUT!!!!! Tank is being just the VERY BEST flock rooster with his girls!!!! They are such a great, cohesive happy family group. And he's pretty sweet with me (not that I try to cuddle or anything) - maybe because I had to physically put him to bed every night for over a month. Of course, the girls will only use one of the two nest boxes, because he likes to get in the other one sometimes.
He's more slender as an adult than Apoc and Snape (as opposed to his really extraordinary fast growth as a baby), but well built and very healthy. Very happy with him. It makes me so happy to watch them roam in their new paddock.
