Hi all! It's that time of year again! Chick season! Anyway, welcome to FeatherMtnFarms' 2018 Chick thread! I am so excited to chat will you all about the chicks I got this year! Tag along to watch their journey from chick to grown bird and the adventures along the way! Introduction So this year we had 0 plans on getting baby chicks, I had prepared myself to see all the cute babies in the stores and NOT get any...I couldn't do it...we had gone into Tractor supply to pick up some stuff we saw the chicks, I resisted but wanted to see Shipton's chicks as well and when we got into the store my mom and I saw this very new and beautiful breed; Sapphire Gem. They are a new breed developed by a breeder in the Czech Republic and we couldn't resist! But you can't just have two chicks right? So we got two Sapphire Gems, a California white (another breed I had marveled at for some time) and a Dominique! Meet the Chicks! Riya Sapphire Gem Opal California White Jewel Sapphire Gem Also Jewel *Jewel has a unique facial marking on the left side of her face so in some pictures she may show this or the other side, don't confuse her for another bird! lol Oreo Dominique Follow along for updates on the chicks, adventure, LOTS of pictures and overall chickie cuteness!
