    hey, been a Barred Rock gal for 16 years love them.... decided to try some new breeds this year and it's been fun New Hampshire Reds and Welsummers NHR's are still young but very sweet, my Welsummers are still babies but have stolen my heart.. Received a free chick in my order , forgot to click the box to decline lol... Have no idea what breed it is so hopefully I can find some identification here with yall. Sweet and smart little chick.. overly friendly from day one to seek me out when they hear me come into the barn. Old enough to jump out of the baby tank but will come running when they know I've entered the barn and today flew into my arms as i was bending down to pick them up to put back with the other babies.. Won my heart for sure to want to know who this little one is.....

    Look forward to meeting everyone and learning about your birds..

    Oh and ,She has decided her name is Gloria. She is always out and about, and must be doing and seeing everything that I am doing lol lol ... I was up on a tub trying to adjust a heat lamp and she was trying her best to fly up to where I was.. work clothes are a hoodie and she loves to find a nice spot in the hoodie and tag along.. "she's a free spirit"
