Well they aren't really chicks anymore, more like teenagers, but I think it just makes it nice to include some more grown-up pictures of our new chickens where you can scroll down and see what they looked like and fluff balls. All future series of pictures of them will be on our normal Chickens picture page.
Large Fowl (Standard Sized) Chicks!
Bantam (Miniature) Chicks!
First Day in the Coop!
(Excuse the poop on the waterer... they started perching on it immediately )
Early June Pictures!

Here are some pictures of our babies enjoying the outdoors!
Here's our little nut ball, a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte that loves our dog and my husband and I!

Here are some of the fruits of our photo shoot to document all of our chicks and to ID the ones that are too similar to tell apart.
Wings have been tipped with food coloring to assist with ID.
Mystery Chick- Barred Cochin (Bantam?)
Partidge Rock Bantam
Peach, Silver Laced Wyandotte
Zelda, Porcelain Belgian D'Uccle
Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
Mille Fleur Belgian D'Uccle
Money-Penny, Black Copper Maran
Blue Easter Egger
Chestnut Easter Egger
Our special Chipmunky Easter Egger that came to us with severe eye infections
Rose, White Easter Egger
Red Frizzle Cochin Bantam
Golden Laced Cochin Bantam
Dark Brahma Bantam
(Look at his still little stumpy wings, these guys are so cute how slow they grow!)
Dark Cornish Bantam
We have many more (we took pictures of each chick and labled them all) but it's too much work to post them all. More to come at 2.5 weeks. =)

We received our shipment of baby chicks from McMurray hatchery, and only 1 loss so far.
There was a minimum order so we're a bit overrun with peeps, but once we can properly sex them 90% will be sold,
and we will keep the best hens for ourselves to establish a miniature egg-laying flock. =)
The little box is our "hospital box" to keep our weaker chicks in until they aren't vulnerable to picking by the others.
And those things in the waterer are marbles to keep the bantam (miniature) chicks from drowning.
Note the little ham of a chick to the left of the waterer in the photo above. It's one of the Blue-Laced Red Wyandotte chicks my husband chose... of course he picks the little clown!
