    I was told they are Rhode Island Reds, and praying they are pullets [​IMG] I would like to know if any of you have an idea of how old they are? I know they are at least 3 days old.
    This is Peepers, the first one I got...

    I also need names, I have two names already Peepers and Nugget. I need two more [​IMG]
    Thanks
    Kat and the new babies...

    I forgot to say they have washable markers on their heads to tell them apart and the dog run/coop pics will be in the coop section [​IMG]

    I say just under a week. If you say you "rescued them from being food"... my guess is that they are roo's.

    Watch that they don't peck each other where the marker is. Especially the red one.

    I tried to do that with mine just yesterday and boy once they saw Dolly had purple on her head they went in pecking at her horrible.

    Thanks for saving those little cuties.
