These are my Black Australorp chooks, enjoying a bit of the great outdoors, in the comfort of the great indoors. I believe them to be roughly 5 weeks old. Anyone else care to venture a guess? The one on the extreme left is Mrs. Gladys Kravitz, wearing her patented trademark look of "hey, what's going on over there?!" Also, I have only been able to identify her from the others because of specific beak markings...but that is changing quickly. Anybody know where I can get 6 all different colored leg bands? Everyone only seems to sell them 25 at a whack, and all of one color. I would love to be able to (shh...don't tell them) tell them apart! When the kids were here over the holiday weekend, they accepted that Gladys was Gladys, and named everyone else "follows", because everyone needs a name, and because the all chooks ran toward them, and whatever they were doing. Very social, curious, chatty, and unafraid, my lot. Bright Blessings, from my chooks to yours!
