    Here's another pic of him. Let's call him chick #1
    [​IMG]
    chick #2. She's my next best and probably the only one Im keeping
    [​IMG]
    Here's chick #2 with chick #6 tailing her.

    chick #3 nice pullet. but a little too much "ticking" I call it. (the speckling on her back and cushion)
    [​IMG]
    chick #4 4,5,and 6 are app. a week younger. I kept putting eggs under my broody. I think this one has a bit of growing before I can sex it.

    chick #5 may be a keeper if she's a she...I think she may be [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    chick #6 Im pretty sure he's a cockerel.

    Quote:LOL I had to scroll back up a couple of times looking at the chickens. They're all feathering! And then I realized... Wow, am I slow on the up-take tonight!

    Time for bed...

    Lovely babies, now I want columbian cochins, darn it.

    They have such a 'pristine' sort of look. #2 is gorgeous!
