    Out of the "flock" I attempted last year I got one dark brahma hen and one bantum hen of some sort. I can have 5 hens. The other day I picked up 3 chicks from the feed store, 3 jersey giants and 3 black sex links!!!!!111111eleventy!!

    They are so cute! One doesn't match, it's larger and has more chipmunk like features. I got extra to be sure I met my 5 hen allowance. I have them in a box right now but I'm looking into something a little larger. I thought maybe the playpen, kiddie pool combo.

    They are so cute when they plop down and stretch out!!! Sometimes they fall asleep with their heads in the food! I can't get a good pic, maybe I can get a video. Does any one else have any pics of stretched out chicks?

    I'm surprized at how lively they are, they seem kind of wild. If I could find some little bugs they would be my friend. THey can't be much over a week old, if that AND THEY CAN FLY!!!! THey fly in little circles!

    My hats off to all of you that capture cute chick pics!

    I put them outside in the now unused chicken tractor. I put bottles of hot water in the pen for them to cuddle up to if they get chilly.

    this one looks differant then the others.

    Very cute! The city nearby us only allows 4 hens, no cockerels at all. Five hens is nice for a backyard flock. [​IMG]
