Update: March 3rd.. First batch of chickens are now what...3 weeks old? They are still rather in their fugly phase and look like pin cushions gone wrong. But being that they are growing SO fast hubby and I decided that they had to be in a bigger area than the brooder we had set up but the barn is still too cold and drafty. So we built... GIGANTIC BROODER! ;) yes. I know... its bigger than my dorm room ;)
Darling Hubby helped me get the gigantic brooder together: No hes not really tiny.. it really IS that big.
Is it just me or does my heat lamp look like something out of Jurassic Park?
So much SPACE! What do we do?! ... ummm... Hide in a corner?
See how much we have grown!
Note the two white ones in the back. They have up till now always been identical... just two different sizes. So we call them Itty and Bitty. (Itty of course being the little one)
STRIKE THE POSE! *VOGUE* ;) I hope this is a girl. I REALLY like this one. Its the only one who LIKES to be held... there are others that tolerate being petted... but this one will just sit on my hand or knee and be calm and relaxed. what breed do you think?
The essence of being a teen....
Beth and Bitty caught mid run... But I swear... it looks like they are doing the hokey pokey or something LOL
Do you think that brown headed one is the Egyptian?
Chickzilla. Shes grown up so fast. Shes going to be a pretty brown hen!
I think I'm a gold campine....
Everyone Scratch on my mark! (Even though human Daddy was trying to get them to stop scratching and look up for a picture ... naturally!)
AND I got 8 little bantams from TS... will post their pics in a few mins. I also am expecting the replacement shipment to arrive any day now. I wont keep all the birds obviously... So if your around Dallas TX and want a Chicken.. let me know. ;)
