    I just got two new chicks. I had 4 and one turned out to be a chockeral so I had to get rid of him.[​IMG] I wanted to pick up one more to replace him but she was so lonely I desided to get two instead. My other chicks are now 6 weeks old. They are the Marans that I hatched. The new ones were sexed so hopefully they both turn out to be girsl. I got a silver laced Wayondotte and a RIR.

    I have named the RIR Willow after my favorate redhead from Buffy T.V.S.
    The SLW is named Gabrielle.

    Here is a resent pic of the older girls.

    Those silly girls have the whole side yard with grass and bushes and trees to play under but every time I let them out of the tractor they insist on hanging out on the cement walkway. [​IMG]

    Oh how sweet!

    They should just stay that way. Of course, I'd never get anything done since I would have to hover and adore...

    Chicks are cute as anything but tough on my productivity!!
