While looking for info on baby chicks, I found this forum. OMG! What a great source of info! I see that I am not the only person who is suseptible to impulse purchasing all while trying to convince the DH that these little creatures will be great to have around! As a kid, my mom had some chickens but apparently I was too busy with teenagerdom to pay much attention, with the exception of watching her crazy rooster. He would try to run up behind you and when you turned around, he acted like he was pecking the ground, but he never made contact with the ground at all! When I was a bit younger, we did hatch some duck eggs that my grandmother got from the local park, and it was great fun candling them and watching them hatch. Fast forward a couple (few?) decades and a simple trip to Tractor Supply for some other supplies and (after a couple of whines and a pouty lip) Viola! we walked out with 3 chicks. Then we went to another feed store and, what do ya know? they've got chickies, too! I picked up 3 more chickies there! A feeder, waterer, heatlamp, some feed and grit and I'm in the chicken business!!! WooHoo! Now, the DH is in love with them too. (I knew he would be! ) They are funny little things, falling dead asleep and looking you over with their tiny little eyes. I need some help identifying what I've got. The first 3 are supposed to be Americanas, and the last 3 were in the bin marked Bantam @ TSC. I think one of them is a White Crested Black Polish, Bearded or not? The others I have no clue. I appreciate any help with identification of my new babies!
