    The feedstore just got a huge assorted batch of these tiny little delights and I couldn't resist taking three home! [​IMG] I wanted to scoop up whole handfuls of them, but I'm pretty impressed with my self-restraint -though we'll see what happens tomorrow... [​IMG]

    I tried to do the feather sexing to get pullets, but I'll have to wait and see how I did -does that even work on Banties? I was looking to get some blues and splashes, but I wasn't sure which were solid blue and which were black, so I went with two that I'm (pretty) sure are blue splash. Also the darkish one with the reddish head caught my eye -I couldn't remember what that coloring meant, but checking now I wonder if it could be a Gold-laced Wyandotte? *hopes*

    Actually I'd be happy with just about anything as long as it has those fuzzy feets! [​IMG] My standard Buff Brahma made me fall in love with feathered feet and dark beaks, so I'm biased... [​IMG]

    What do you think? (The quarter is for scale)



    SO TINY!! *squeal* I can't believe how tiny they are!! [​IMG]
