    My welsummer babies I hatched in October.

    Moose (appropriately named because he was twice the size of the other chicks that hatched)
    [​IMG]

    Moose at about 9 weeks. (he's 11 weeks now)

    My 2 pullets, also welsummer. You can see Moose on the left and the 2 ladies on the right. And a BR cockeral in the picture too.

    Hey Bock_Bock,

    What brand of digital thermometer and/or hygrometer are you using? is it accurate? I tried a hygrometer(digital) last year, and i don't think it helped, going to a wet bulb this year.

    Thank you

    The one in the back with the black and white is a Java. The others are mutts.

    This chick is probably one of my favorites because he has white fuzz but purple skin and has no silkie background at all [​IMG]
