    SO CUTE!!! I love my RIRs. They are the nicest IMO. A few years ago I had a RIR roo named Willy(RIP). He was my baby, so friendly and tame. I miss him terribly:(
     
  4. Pretty cute, and they look comfortable. What's your weather like where you are at?

    Oh they are just too adorable!!! I wish I lived closer. I would hop over there! You are a few hours from us. Our feed store doesn't get too many chicks in and it is a MAD rush to the store to get them.

    Quote:The weather here is warming up. Yesterday was 65*. This morning there isn't even any frost! Probably high 30's last night. Today looks promising to be warm again! I have 10 days off work, so it was the perfect time to get babies, My other chickens are 6 years now, 3 of the 4 are still laying, but I just felt it was time to get more chickies, its been a long time since I had chickies!! They like to sleep in their food bowl, its cute!

    Very nice RIR chicks! They look healthy and happy, too. Congratulations! How I hope the local feed store here would sell different breeds aside from cornishes.

    Good luck with them!
