    I have 7 bantams, all from feed stores around my area. I have 2 turkens, 2 silkies, 1 cochin, 1 australorp, and 1 polish. They're 5 weeks old as I write this, but I will add more pics as they get older.

    This was our first batch from the first feed store we went to. We picked up the other 3 a couple days later. I didn't get pics of the other three at 1 week.. I started taking pics of them at 2 weeks.

    ..And Mr. Peeper, who has been growing so fast, he's suddenly unable to hold his own weight. We're treating him for splayed leg currently.

    I brought them out yesterday and just took a bunch of group pics, so here they are! We made the hard decision to cull Peep because he really wasn't
    making any progress with walking. :/
