You've had a lot of years of "chicken therapy", so I would totally believe you're calm and laid back. ;)

I agree except in the case of my husband.  He does ALL sorts of "those little things" to irritate me, often on purpose.  I don't take it out on others.  I take it out on HIM.  Otherwise, I'm usually pretty easy going, and tolerant of everyone else.

I let the "kids" out to wander in the run today. Even though it was overcast and they are only five weeks old there was no mistaking they have a beautiful green sheen to their new feathers. In fact I'd probably describe them as deep green rather than black. Can't wait to see them in the sunshine :-)

Finally took some more photos of the babies.  They will be 5 weeks old this weekend.  I am guessing that the one with the white fluff feathers on the chest still is going to be a rooster and the other a pullet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love the way you can see they are actually green more than black in this one :-)

 

The one I think is a girl has all its black butt feathers and a little tail, the one I think is a rooster, not so much :-)

I could be wrong but I don't know they are that common over there so I'm not sure who else has splash other than myself and @maddogdodge but ours are going to look a little different to what you guys have as we are both in Australia and hers are bantam.

I'm very partial to the blacks and there are actually quite a few folks breeding the splash and blue birds in the States.

Thought somebody said they were hard to come by a while back. Might have been a different breed thread I'm confusing it with. Do any of our thread regulars have them?
