    September 2010: I received my new chicks in the mail from My Pet Chicken on September 15th. All arrived safe and sound. This page will document their growth.

    Update May 2011: I currently have photos of them at 2 1/2 weeks, 6 weeks, 11 weeks, 15 weeks of age, and 7 months of age. Breeds listed here are: Black Copper Marans, Barnevelders, Partridge Plymouth Rocks, Speckled Sussex, Welsummers, Polish. I also have other breeds pictured on my from-chicks-to-pullets-to-hens page.

    Welsummer -- 7 months old and laying pretty dark brown eggs

    The 2 eggs that are dark, but not the very darkest were laid by the Welsumer. The 2 darkest eggs were laid by the BCM (actually darker in person, but the flash lightened them a bit)
