    Okay, really no point in posting these, other than I wanted to share pics of my girls ( and probably a few boys too)

    At first, no one went near the dreaded cottage cheese, a red sex link circles, time and time again . . .

    Mine LOVE cottage cheese. Cute chicks.

    Watch out though as they can sling it everywhere. And when they look up with some on their beaks, they look a little rabid.

    Lol that is too cute. I think that's how my babies tackle every food item I put in. We tried spaghetti tonight and it took a bit for Maple our head girl to come and take a bite then the boys cam over then it was a free for all and chasing everyone for the spaghetti.

    You have some amazing birds love the Delewares they are gorgeous. Are they very friendly?

    I'm so new at this didn't know which ones were possibly delawares, the white ones with are light brahmas, you can't see them well in these pictures but they have beautifully feathered legs and feet.

    That cottage cheese might bite, gotta watch it carefully and circle round and round first. [​IMG]

    Too cute! That's pretty much the same reaction I got when introduced yogurt for the first time! [​IMG] Beautiful chicks. I just adore my red stars! Total sweethearts, and great layers.

    My husband came in a few minutes ago and I showed him these pics. He was telling me when he fixed the waterer issue for me yesterday, he was bent down under the cover for the water and suddenly there was a red chick in his face, one on his shoulder, and another on his knee. They are very friendly. I think he is hooked by their curiosity, I don't think he expected to like the chicks/chickens but he does. Wh ei take a chair into the coop to watch them they line up to perch on me. So different once they are out of the brooder, really seek that attention. Thanks for looking!
