(awesome name by the way), I wish we had an even bigger assortment! The plan was 2 white, 2 red, 2 black, until I put my foot down and demanded some standard chickens. So we eliminated 1 black and 1 red.
They are all beautiful. Black had some gray spots until she started getting her more mature fluff, and she's now jet black. The red looked like a partridge up until a few days ago - now she's getting some nice red coloring in on her chest and the back of her neck. I think she'll be my favorite color - buff was my choice for silkies but I think this will be pretty similar. The whites looked a little whiter with the newer fluff coming in, but I swear they're still slightly yellow.
They do indeed look like cottonballs. I am so happy with the fluffy tail development. DH looked like a kid at Christmas last night, holding one in his lap and petting that little rabbit tail. His face was pure glee.Prizma
don't forget about those pics. We all have insatiable baby-chick-pic appetites. Very glad to hear yours arrived safe and sound. I am interested to see PulletSurprise's
new ones too. I'm hoping this installment doesn't cause her any grief.
