I'll post updated pictures every few weeks and keep this thread updated in general. These are my "first" chickens on my own farm, but I grew up on a farm as well so I'm not new to chickens. I am starting with my Meyer hatchery order (hatched on 04OCT2021) although chicken math is already starting to set in and I'm itching to add some more Faverolles and find some Dorkings.

Hopefully I have everyone labeled correctly although it's been awhile and I'm doing this from my phone so if I mixed someone up please let me know.

I love them all! They are so handsome and beautiful! I especially love Sigrid and Fergus, perfect names in my book! (I'm of nordic origins :p)
The blue laced wyandotte is actually a blue laced red. :) A wyandotte with just plain blue coloring is a Blue Wyandotte.

Can't wait for more pictures as they grow older and feather in! That's my favorite part of raising chicks!

Thank you for the correction! I knew she was blue Laced something, but I couldn't remember what the actual name was. My mothers side is Nordic/Bavarian and my father is from very old Celtic lines so I wanted to include some ancestral origin names:)

You are welcome! Yeah, there are a lot of variations when it comes to chicken breeds, almost too many. :lol: Nice, family lines are so interesting! Good thinking!
I have an Astrid! May I show you a picture on here?
