What kind of birds are in the 1st pic? I tried to number the pic's I saw them in also but just too many... lol
I love them they are beautiful!!
Ah tried to remove all the messages to respond ... Those two are Tolbunt Polish roosters, one smooth and one frizzle.
The top picture is about 3 weeks before the pictures on down, their crests keep growing. The black one was more friendly but now the crest is blocking his vision more so he has become more skittish. I hope they get along good as they mature. Right now they are friends but the black one is a little spit fire, always n the go and hangs out more with the other chickens. The one with more white does his own thing. He is calmer and when held he is more nervous (trembles) but settles down well. He just goes about his own business more and doesn't stay with the others as well. Pecks and scratches, settles down etc.
They are so beautiful !!!! I will have to look into a new breed once we get into our new place ( when ever that will be ) Like I need more chickens... lol
Out of the last of the broody batches (hopefully!) I ended up keeping 2 bantam Cochins. 1 smooth and 1 frizzled. Then the 2 silkies from a test hatch. 13 went to their new home last night and oh how happy I am to have just these bitties (inside).
Now that they have this big cage all to themselves they are sleeping in their food dish! Lol! Love chicks!
I am down to the Scissor beck & the mystery chick in one brooder and my lone Silkie chick in another. O and I had to bring in 1 of the Silkie chicks from outside today.
Heres the deal, this chick has to come in and have her butt cleaned every other day, they are 3 weeks old now, She is so much smaller than her siblings, and she cant keep up with mom as well as the others, and mom ( she is a great mom ) just lets her lag behind. She just is not thriving as well as she should, I have her on the baby vit. Is there anything else ya'll think might help her catch back up. I put her in with the lone chick (1 week old ) for now and they are the same size.
