    Here are a few pic of my baby chicks.some are a week(+ a few days) old and some are just a few days old. I love the one of the tiny Silver Phoenix "Boots b/c it had to wear a bandaid boot on its curled toes until today) and the big burly Black Australorp next to it. 1 week different in age and they look like David and the Giant!

    here is the link to see all of the baby chicks and ducklings. http://s8.photobucket.com/albums/a5/lisalaird/chickens/
    I'm
    open to selling most of the ducklings- 9 black Swedish or Cayugas...some are mixed-but most are Black Swedish and a few look like pure Cayugas with a faint buff color on the chest (so they may be a mix? Not sure-they are jet black otherwise...)

    Adorable! The size difference is huge, makes "Boots" look even cuter. Are those Naked necks at the feeder?

    The light colored one is a NN X EE (daddy is a dark NN and mommy is one of my EE's.) The darker one is a Partridge Showgirl baby...from therealsilkie eggs. I hatched 2 of them and a blue silkie from her eggs. I absolutely love those chicks and feel wretched that i messed up the hatch by opening the bator. Many others would have hatched too had I not done that. Boots is so tiny I still worry about him/her in there. I keep checking to make sure all is well.
