    Nugget is 12 weeks old-she came from Jody's eggs. The blue and splash Ameraucanas, Nora and Snow, came from Cree lines. Lynn got the eggs from a friend and mailed them to me from California. Thought for ages one or both were cockerels for some reason, but at 13 weeks, I'm pretty sure they're young ladies. Snow gets two pics-I know the last is very blurry, but it shows her nice beard. I just think she's beautiful and sweet-looking.

    Trudy, the Buff one is a Buff Orpington, the only pullet I got from that hatch of that breed. Then Nora is a Blue Ameraucana and Snow is a splash Ameraucana. Nora is pretty skittish, but only because I haven't had the time to spend with her-they were part of a group of over 30 chicks. Snow is very sweet. She chatters the whole time I'm holding her in this tiny little girly voice.

    Nugget is coming into her own, but even when she looked like this little gold midget, she was one tough cookie! She backs down those big Welsummer girls every time.
