So I just got my chicks this weekend and they are doing great! I got them from the president of the Dominique Club of America and he has a very nice flock of birds (not to mention a really nice flock of Buckeyes). Notice how two (Ranger and Bandit) are a week older than the other four (sunshine, Lady Bug, Dandylion and Cluck). We were a little worried the younger ones would be picked on but an odd thing happens. When we transport them outside or to clean the cage the younger chicks will run under the slightly older chicks and the older ones will spread their wings like mother hens. I guess Dominiques have a reputation as good mothers for a reason! You can see that Ginger is pretty interested in them. She was obsessed but has since calmed down a bit. The last pic is the flock they came from, a very nice looking flock. So cute!!
