Okay, a new mama's allowed to brag, right? I finally pulled my nice camera out to take some decent pics of my 6-day-old chicks (1 Barred Rock, 1 Black Sex Link, 1 Delaware, and 2 Easter Eggers) before they get any less poofy! They grow too fast! These are my first ever chickens and I am in love. They already have such individual personalities already, and I'm eager to see them grow up -- most importantly happy and healthy... and ideally as the pullets they're supposed to be... And I'm a dork so created profiles for them. Enjoy! It's been easy to tell my two Easter Eggers apart because of their head marking - and I've been SOOO excited to see what they grow up to look like, because (from what I've read here) it's nearly impossible to predict their feather coloring based on their chick fuzz (right?). I'm fascinated by the subtle difference in their wing feather patterns. Is it barring? Lacing? Pencilling? Anyone have some light to shed here? In other news, you know how the feeder is designed to prevent a mess? Clearly, they've figuring out how to scratch their chick feed out of those little holes. It must taste better off the ground! Thanks for gawking at my chicks along with me!
