    Just thought I'd post a few pics of the chicks I got from fellow BYCer McSpin on the 15th. I had originally requested 16 chicks, but due to a bad hatch, I only ended up with 7. Guess it means I'll have to order more this spring! That breaks my heart! [​IMG]

    At a week and a half they're getting big and sassy, and they're feathering out nicely.

    I can tell they are Yankee chicks because they acted as though I was trying to roast them last week when the brooder was warmed to about 90 degrees. Today the brooder was about 80 degrees when I went out this morning to check on them, and they were perfectly content at that temp. They also peep without a trace of Southern drawl. I keep telling them that "peep" should be pronounced as though it had two syllables. They're coming around. [​IMG]

    Ha, y'all 'll have to feed them lots of grits and black eyes peas or something to get them southified.[​IMG]

    Thanks, Whimsy! These guys seemed so tiny when they arrived. I guess I'd forgotten how small baby chicks were.

    We're getting there, True Grit! Guess I need to break out a grit recipe for them.

    I wonder if they'll be as crazy about grits as they are for oats and boiled eggs?? [​IMG]

    Do you have Welsummers, Coleslaw??? I really like my wellies. My current Wellie roo is king of the barnyard, but he's a real sweetie.
