There is always a cat around. These ladies are two months old now. They come when I call them and I can pick them up. They perch at night and during the day they lay in that crate. I notice they don't poop in that crate for some reason. They hatched at the same time, however the one "omelette" in the back with the lighter head is smaller. The front one "Janet" is darker and not shy at all. A Mexican guy sold them to me for 1.67 as pullets and from what I understood, he said they are RIR's. They are going through that ugly phase. When should I take them off of chick starter? In an eggshell, these are pics of my very first chickens.
