    Well, according to my calander, my chicks are 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 weeks old.

    I made a list awhile back of them when I entered pics on a bulletin of them when they first arrived, my list was incorrect because some of the breeds I put the incorrect amount. So here they all are now.

    Here are the 2 1/2 week olds:

    My buff minorca pullet:

    My 4 yokohamas (the bigger ones are 3 1/2 weeks)
    [​IMG]

    My 2 salmon faverolle pullets:

    My 2 partridge silkies:

    My 2 black langshan pullets:

    3 of my 4 sultans:

    My 2 red frizzles:

    My 2 Ameracauna (EE) pullets:

    My 3 malays:

    (Note: Forgot to get pics of my 2 1/2 week old orloffs [​IMG] )


    My 3 1/2 week olds:
    4 of my 5 malays:

    My 4 buff orpingtons:

    My 3 buttercups, can you tell who is the roo?:

    My 2 orloffs with my one mix I hatched:

    & here is my 2 1/2 week old sultan that broke his leg last Saturday, Lucky:

    I am currently needing help with names. I named my BO roo Einstein, because of his wacky hair style.
    I need help with naming my:
    Buttercup Roo
    Black Mix Roo I hatched
    Buff minorca pullet
    2 Ameracauna pullets


    Thanks guys!

    Cute! I love when they're in the in between stage. I've got Welsummers about the same age. Sorry I can't think of any names. I'm still trying to name some of mine.

    They are so cute!!! I love the way the little frizzles feathers are frizzing (?) :lauhaha

    I love old fashioned names. I have EE chicks named Abbie, Emma, Maggie, and then there's Lucy (she's a Golden Comet with red "hair") and I have a one I'm pretty sure is a roo and altho I can't keep him, I named him Spike! Spike seems like a fitting name for a roo since they have pointy feathers, pointy beaks, pointy spurs, you get the idea! [​IMG]

    I have a few other names picked out and am waiting until I'm sure who are girls and who are boys! It's driving me crazy. [​IMG]

    Such cute babies. Here are some ideas for names:

    Henrietta, Edna, Maude, Basil, Lillian, Lilly, Rosie, Rosemary

    These are names that people have given me for mine. I'm waiting until I know their personality before giving them names. I'm suppose to have all pullets..waiting to see about that too [​IMG]

    One of your Ameracauna chicks looks like his legs are very green. If that's the case I'd name her Kermit or Greensleeves.

    Buttercup roo should be called Wesley. Wesley marries princess Buttercup in the movie, Princess Bride. Either that or Humperdink or Fezzik.[​IMG]
