    My chicks are 3 weeks old now, so I thought I would post before and after pictures of some of them (my Speckled Sussex and EEs are deathly afraid of my camera :rolleyes: ). Enjoy :)

    I'm not sure what color to call this chick, it is supposed to be blue. It does have some blue patches, but its mostly black. Cochin, 3 days old

    Barred Cochin, 3 weeks old. This is my absolute favorite chick! She's such a sweet ball of fluff.

    They've grown up so fast. Now I just wish one of my hens would go broody. I need more babies!!!!

    I love your barred Cochin! What a transformation from chick to three week old! It's amazing, isn't it?

    Thanks for sharing the pics.....I love that pic of your blue cochin as a chick, with it's little eyes closed.

    it's been awhile since i've had chicks, so i forgot how fast they grow! i was thinking that it takes about 6 weeks for them to look like little adults, but no, now i can see they look like tiny adults at about 3 weeks! CUTE! my favorite pic is the one of the FUZZ BUTT! chick butts are the cutest butts in the world!!! and then when they grow up, my favorite parts of them is their feet (especially) and then their combs and wattles. but i love chicken feet!!!
