    I got these straight run chicks from TSC, couple days old, the "B" tub, forget at the moment, fuzzy legs. I just raised to 6 weeks ... 2 ameracanua(sp?) and 3 RIR and 2 Silver something or others all pullets, but I was weak when in TSC yesterday getting a bag of feed and came home with 4 straight run chicks... I jsut moved my others inot the barn coop mansion that we built last weekend, 2 brooder lamps and visqueen the while coop still a little chilly at night here in NC.

    Back to the new ones , what are they number 1 AND 2 ARE super TEENY, SMALLER then 3 and 4 the fuzzy legged ones, number 2 is a dilutish color but reminds me of the amera... but 1/2 the size...

    on to the pics sorry tey are blurry my digital is hard to figure out, i will mess with digital and see if I can figure out how to get it to work on close up pics.

    1# yellow teeny!! with 2 light black dots on top of head.

    2# the teeny ameracauna look alike.. I cant explain how small this thing is.

    3# Fuzzy legs , i thought it looked like a calico cat , multi color

    #4 Deep rich colors fuzzy legs, love the pattern on it baby fuzz, pics dont do it justice

    Then the big question will be the sexes at some point.

    I am not sure about #1.
    #2 looks like a silver duckwing pattern, so probably a silver old english bantam
    #3 looks like a partridge cochin bantam, I say that because of the white belly and brown face
    #4 looks like a golden laced cochin bantam

    Thanks these guys are so teeny compared to my last group, I hope to get all these guys friendly, only 2 maybe 3 out of my last 7 are friendly and would fly into my lap in the bathroom, the other 4 are very flightly, dont like attention. I hope to make all these guys friendly ,but then im afraid to get attached too. Im worried about having roosters, but I guess we will be OK , I can always make another coop , LOL we have plently of barn and land for it!
