    Our first flock of chickens​

    We haven't named most of the chicks yet: their personalities seem to slowly be developing, so we're biding our time. This Barred Rock chick is very friendly, inquisitive, and brave. She ran right up to the camera: I got the photo just before she went to peck at the lens!
    And this is Miss Speckle, who did get a name, mostly by being cute & falling asleep in my hand. (Her name has nothing to do with anything: it's because of the pattern on her head)




    This is the first picture I took of almost everyone...one chick's missing from the photo. It seems to me that they've already changed a lot, in the 3 days since we opened the box from Meyer Hatchery, but that may just be n00b talk. I'm sure someone can set me straight on that account!
