    Oh my, they are just sooo precious !! I can't wait til my next new babies arrive around April 16! They'll be my first Silkies. So , do any of your babies have furry feet ? Of course those would be the Cochins or brahmas . Where did you get them ?

    You know what I like about chicks? It's how busy they always are-when they aren't napping.

    yes three of my chicks have feathered legs, and they are definatly bigger than the red ones. I really hope they are brahmas, ive heard they are really friendly birds. Everyones chicks are so cute its hard not to want to get more!

    Looks like maybe I have 2 roos, but they are only maybe a week and a half old. One of the brahma chicks wing feathers are barely in and the other two have lots of feathers. And it looks like one of my red chicks comb is bigger than the others.......I cant keep roosters so Im not sure what I am going to do with them. I guess give them away?

    Awww yay! Welcome to the world of chickens!
    You just keep getting more obsessed as they get older! :D
    I love my hens sooooooo much, how they follow me around the garden, and make adorable noises and sunbathe when it's warm and huddle up when it's cold! n__n
    Good luck with yours, they look adorable!! :D
