    We're going to be up to our ears in laundry because I've been outside sitting with them alllll day [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    These are frizzled cochin/EE chicks [​IMG] [​IMG]


    And before the questions fly, I free range my bantams and have had great success with it. This is my little bantam EE who I thought was somehow gone, but I found her the next day on this nest behind the barn. I took an old pet kennel in half and put it over her and here she is 22 days later [​IMG]
    And YES, she is safe! We are fairly predator-free here and I've yet to loose a bird to anything other than my own dog [​IMG] These little chicks are doing so well, running in the sunshine, scratching in the dirt, and snuggling Mama [​IMG]
