    It's hard to believe that just 3 months ago I was holding these girls in the palm of my hands!
    I went out to feed this morning and instead of "peep peeps" from the 6 little ones and "cluck, cluck" from the 4 big girls, I hear "cluck, cluck" "hack hack". The little ones sound like little fog horns now!. They are growing up.

    Of course pics below to show them off.


    Left to right:
    Miss Maylene (red s. cochin), Miss Angel (white s.cochin) Miss Bounce (JG) Miss Leah (partride s.cochin) Miss J.J. (JG) and Miss Martha (gold lace s. cochin)
    They will be 3 mos. old next week.

    Quote:Thank you. We love all of them. (Well my hubby is not too crazy about Henry the Leghorn roo, but that's another story! [​IMG] ) The 4 big girls were giving me eggs everyday but have stopped due to the heat. [​IMG] Hopefully they will start laying again soon. What with the mister, the fan and the ice water! LOL!

    What I'm really hoping for is some little ones from Essie the goose next spring. That would be great!
