    I've been wanting to share one of my hatches but these birds are so flighty! It's been very hard. Anyway they are now 3 weeks old. I have Buff Orps from Jody, Blue and Splash Orps from Jimmy Coxs. Black Marans, a Splash Maran, and a Gold Salmon Maran also from Jimmy, and some more beautiful Buff Silkies from Jody.

    Oh and I have 3 of my playing with my own birds, just barnies. They are the ones with the crests!
    Thanks for letting me share!

    Jody, thanks! I also have a couple not in the pic. I can't sex anything!
    They have almost out grown this brooder, it's 4x4ish, i have an 8 ft by 4 1/2 ish ft brooder also and some other 4x4's. I'm trying to figure out how I want to move them now. I'm trying to find more cardboard to make another 8fter.
