Time for our second photo session! I'm finally starting to tell a couple apart, so they're getting some names. My Dad held the group in the box, while I took one at a time out to take a picture and check their butts before returning them to the brooder. The first couple of chicks were freaked and stood tall, stretched and peeped loudly during their pictures. By the time I got to the last couple of chicks, they were so sleepy, I couldn't even get them to stand up - they just wanted to nap.

I love their tiny tail feathers that are just starting to appear.

Mr. Feathers, EE, lazy bum. Hardly even makes a sound when I approach the brooder, but man, don't take him away from the girls! He goes nuts! and he's LOUD!

I'm guessing on the GL and SL's - because of the reddish brown and silverish down. Now, with their feathers coming in, the SL's have white and the GL's have red.

Mr. Feathers was marked with a green sharpie by Ideal. Comparing him to the girls, he's got much less wing feathering coming in and more of and more rounded tail feathers - assuming that means anything! My first chicks, so I'm just detailing the differences.
