    They are SO CUTE! Little fluffy chicks are the best! I have a bantam just like your Chickletta.... and we thought Golden Laced, but now I am pretty sure she is a Partridge. Come to think of it, our co-op got their bantams from either Ideal or Dunlap... so we might have seen some of the same breeds! Can't wait to see what those two little feathered leg chicks turn out to be!

    Oh, and yes, Easter Egger... and she is CUTE!

    I am not upset, just amazed at how sure we were that she looked like a Golden Laced chick, and not like the Partridge ones we had seen, and what do ya know?! She ends ups being a Partridge.

    This is our first time, and we brought 6 BR home today- they are adorable! One minor bought of pasty butt so far- we will have to keep on top of that. Love having them!!

    FUN! Yea that pasty butt is annoying. We ended up using some olive oil on their vents and it has seemed to really help it from reoccurring.

    Her sister Mae is the same age but looks totally different.
    I am having an issue with her poo still being quite liquidy. She acts just as well as the others so should I be concerned?

    Your Mae is going to look just like my Agatha....bet she was a mostly yellow chick with a small charcoal smudge or two at first, right?
