    I was wondering if you all would post some pics of your hens as chicks and what that same hen looks like as an adult?

    I got a rainbow pullet pack form Meyers and they didn't tell me what they sent me and the suspense is killing me, I would love to figure out what I have but also I am just really interested in how they change as they grow.

    Mine are now 3.5 weeks old and already so different than when they were babies, it's really fun to watch them grow.

    Can't wait to see all your pictures.

    I'll have to dig up a more current picture of Marang for you; since she started laying, her comb has gotten HUGE! It's a leghorn thing ;)

    Oooh, maybe I do have leghorns then, because I have about 5 or 6 chicks that look like her when she was a chick.

    Thanks, keep the pics coming, I hope to have pics of mine once they actually get to laying stage and can do this same thing then.

    Cardboard Chicken arrived separated from the other chicks by a layer of shredded aspen, and was crammed in the corner of the box. She had 'friction' burns from the box. I almost named her Baldy! But her feather grew in and she looks great!
