I got some eggs a few months ago from atlchick, and excitedly, I set them. I'd had one bad hatch after another leading up to when I set these eggs, so I didn't hold out much hope of them hatching, but they did, and I ended up with 8 lovely babies, after all was said and done. George, originally named Georgia, was the most curious chick. When they were still in the bator hatching, George had already hatched and dried off, and every time I put my face to the little window to check the progress of the other chicks, George was right at the window, blocking my view. He was the first to jump in my hand once we opened the bator, and once he was in the brooder, he was always the one right at the front, first to see everything. I liked him right away. Well, he went through his cocky and flighty phase, though not nearly as bad as his sisters and brother, and he was one of the first to calm back down. He and the others are now 8 weeks old, and he's been outside in the coop with the adult birds for about 2 weeks now, and he has adjusted very well. Funny thing is, now he just LOVES me. Wherever I am, that's where George wants to be. He follows me like a little puppy dog. Here are some pics of George outside the other day. I find his colors to be absolutely breathtaking. He sure is growing up to be a handsome fellow! Here is George trying to share my lap with the dog. He actually laid down ON the dog, and the dog was tolerant of it, until he found things to pick off the dog. Then the dog left: On my knee when I was sitting in the coop: My older daughter holding George: And here's one of my favorite pics of him. He was sunbathing here: I think he is one of the most gorgeous EE's I've ever laid eyes on. My mother argues that she thinks they look too much like hawks so they aren't cute. My kids and I love 'em though. I love the muffs. George also happens to have the best looking muffs of all of them too. I got 4 brown girls, 1 white girl, 1 girl with a white head and neck but dark body, and a white roo with black barring, and then George. We named the others Wendell, Gina, Jill, Hershey, Maya, Donna, and Butter(scotch). I hope you enjoyed George in all his studliness, lol. I hope he stays the sweet boy that he is now when he is completely grown up. He's my little buddy!
