Okay.. So I've been anxiously awaiting the hatching of my chicks for 3 weeks now. I bought them from a breeder (though not exhibition stock, I don't care). I've been desperately wanting chicks for a long time now.. Most importantly, chicks that will eventually lay green/blue eggs for me. It took me a long time to find someone realtively close by who bred EEs. By relatively close, I mean 1 hour 45 minutes. They also had mottled houdans, and I could NOT pass them up! So without further ado, here are my 11 new chicks! I have three mottled houdans The little guy is NOT dead. I promise. We drove even further to get some (hopefully) frizzle chicks, and they had to be in our car for six hours. It was fine for them, but I had it very warm in the car. Poor me, not poor them. My miniature poodle, Chloe, really likes the chicks We also got 5 EE's Two light coloured ones like this - though one has a stripe down it's back, and this one just has a dot on it's head. Here's another EE Another one.. Here's the last one.. Along with the (hopefully) frizzle guy. I think it's a boy.. I just have a feeling This is just a mixed one. I think it's a girl. I also just have a feeling Here's there brooder It's my nephew's old playpen. The chicks don't seem to like the heat too close, so I brought it up. Staying at 85 right now, and they prefer that temp so far. They were panting when it was at 90. Dexter tested the brooder out before the chicks arrived.
