    While buying a companion for a lone chick I hatched the other day, a TSC employee did the meanest thing possible and informed me they would get in a new batch of chicks today.

    I swear, I was going to ignore this tidbit of information, but when my SO came home he got a phone call . . . HE GOT HIS DREAM JOB! There is not a chance we would let that pass without celebrating by buying chicks, especially since it means we won't have to move, and we won't have to worry about finding a place that will let us keep our chickens.

    Here are pictures of the result of our celebrations . . . the silkie chick is my SO's special gift for being so darn wonderful. [​IMG]

    Feel free to hazard guesses as to their breeds, but the main point was to share some picture of the adorable little cuties. [​IMG]

    Congrats on the new job - and a big congrats on the new peeps! Great photos - so cute - looks like you have several breeds, but I don't know enough to venture a guess as to what they might be. Thanks for posting the photos!

    Thanks! It was just a wonderful day all around. [​IMG]

    I'm going to scour Ideal's website to see what they could be, but mainly I'm just counting on seeing what they turn into eventually.

    Well, I'm down to two . . . All the others turned out definite roos (fast to mature!). These two are still maybe pullets, though I'm having my doubts on the brown one. We shall see. [​IMG]

    Oh wow! I love how you posted them chick to today. How awesome to see how much they've grown. Sorry about the roo'age. That is what typically happens to me when I purchase chicks that have been sent from a hatchery. The hatchery sends out a higher ratio of roos to pullets because the pullets are where they make more money.

    What really cracks me up at this age is their soooo fugly! They still have the chick head but a feathery body.

    I just hatched this past weekend. 11 babies. I think I'll do the side by side as they grow pic thingy like you. I likes that.

    Well, I decided to update my last post with a final photo of beautiful Nefertini and Misanthropy (Tini and Missy). It's weird how much they change growing up.
