I am in love with them. Entirely, heart-wrenchingly, can't-sleep-at-night-because-I-can't-stop-thinking-about-them in love. All are pullets except for one rhode island red. I'm amazed at the even-temperedness of the chicks in reguard to each other. The golden comets(Cassa and Meliara) are a little over a month, the black sexlink(Flora) it four weeks exactly, one RIR(Sinbad) is three weeks, one RIR(Gabriella) is two and a half. Then I have a week old Easter Egger(Emma). Nobody gets picked on The funniest/cutest thing is watching the the three week old RIR cockrel's distinct preference for the week-old Easter Egger. They are ALWAYS cuddling with each other. And if the EE wanders off when the cockrel isn't looking he'll run around peeping at the top of his lungs until he finds her. Its adorable but it also arouses my curiosity-is it normal for chicks to bond with one specific chick more than others? The three oldest chicks like to hang out with each other but I figure thats just because they've been together the longest. Other than that nobody seems to prefer anybody specifically. Also, the black sexlink is rather, well, she can be just plain psychotic. She screams her head off and rams into the bars whenever I reach into the cage to get a water dish, etc. out. And when I try to hold her its like trying to hold onto a wild cat. A screaming wild cat. Are black sexlinks naturally an extra-sensitive/flighty breed or is it just my one chick? Will she remain this wild in henhood? Are cockrel chicks normally more placid than pullet chicks or is it just Sinbad? He is my sweetest most outgoing chick-if I leave the brooder door open for five seconds he is out and exploring the house until I turn around and realize a chick is missing. He is so friendly and sweet...And yes you can probably tell, he is my favorite.
