    This is Loretta. The smallest, lightest colored, and only chick I got to name. A 4half-5 week old easter egger with a slightly more upright stance than the others

    I didnt get a close up of the legs, but here's Lil Loretta climbing onto a dowel. Pic shows legs. This chick really loves perching & roosting

    And here's the comb area

    The slowest to refeather; Loretta seems to be staying light brown except for head and tail- which are coming in red

    Did I mention (s)he loves to roost?

    Thanks in advance for looking and guessing!

    Another pullet! Did you get them sexed or did you get lucky?

    I really thought I got bantams n sexed. But turns out when I chose the sm quantity special option, I opted for large fowl straight run. oh the excitement! hehehe at least I noticed my ordering mistake before building the 'bantam sized coop'. We love them anyway
