my chicks are 4 weeks old now and their personalities are starting to come through. i'm developing favorites. which is such a bad idea because inevitably some of them are going to have to go (in the freezer). but they are just so cute. here's a few pics. Blondie (EE): undisputed favorite, Queen (i hope she is a she) of the Flock, and total diva camera hogger Chickzilla (EE): desperately needs a new name, but loved all the same Tiny (Silkie): instantly adorable because she's so very teeny Ernest (Brahma): the little cockerel with all the attitude and legs for miles... and one feather that sticks straight out Petunia (Brahma): very girl next door, looks like a song bird my poor little Orpingtons and Wyandottes are still a blur. i think it's because they are so uniformly marked... hopefully they will start the be their own chicken soon.
