    To celebrate they are moving to their big coop tonight. And it's pouring down rain right now - so their first night will be a stormy one [​IMG]

    Here is the whole gang - all 5 of them. Can you tell who is a rooster or hen? Me neither.

    But I'm thinking this guy is a rooster - by the color of the comb and attitude [​IMG]

    And this one is a pullet by the lighter comb and lack of pushyness

    But I suppose with Leghorns - I won't know for sure until he crows and she lays.

    Here's our newest little ones - born on Tuesday August 9th.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments - they are adorable [​IMG]

    The poor WLs are all standing at the window on the coop looking out - probably wondering when I'm coming to bring them inside the house. Hope they figure out that's their new home & start roosting there.
