Here's some pics of our chicks, that quickly are not resembling chicks anymore! Here are a few of the Ideal babies at week 7/8. ^ The roosters are becoming quite obvious. I'm wondering about all of the ones whose combs are not big and turning red at this point. ^ We have to watch how we hook up our web cam now! This is the only EE roo from Ideal we got that is mostly white. ^ And here's one more pic of him, from the front. ^ This guy will be my problem roo. He picks a lot of fights, and as you can see, he's got a bit of an attitude! I have a feeling I might just be cooking him up for dinner here in the next month or so. These are some of the babies from our first batch of eggs: ^ I'm not sure what's up with this little one... but she is tiny. Way smaller than any of the others hatched out at the same time. The birds two weeks younger are quickly getting bigger than her. I'm wondering if one of her parents was a bantam breed. She's also got a single comb instead of a rose comb, unlike the other three EE's that hatched out with her. I think this one and the one below are hens. ^ Potential rooster... which would make my husband happy. He named this one Obama when it hatched since it was just a day or two after the election. ^ Rhode Island White roo #1 And one of the little guys from the second (fridge) batch of eggs: ^ "BP", aka "Black Pearl". This was the little guy/girl who burnt its eyeball on the heat element just after it hatched. It has successfully overcome that injury and has gone on to become a chick with an attitude, and defends itself quite well against the bigger birds in the coop. It's also starting to show signs of brown feathering! We thought for sure it would be an all black chicken, but I guess not! Will edit the post when I have more pics of the other guys to add in the next few days.
