    Here she is, to refresh your memory, the lightest baby in the first pic, almost splash-looking. The next few pics I took today of her show how dark she is feathering out, and how unusual she still looks with her light face:

    And the same baby today at five weeks old:

    She surprised me with those dark feathers! She's already sold and her new mom is supposed to pick her up in mid-January, along with two Barred Rock and a Blue Orp pullet that are a couple of weeks older than she is.

    Are you sure Suede didn't sneak over into the Ameraucana pen (or maybe her mama into his)? [​IMG] She's a lovely girl!

    Here is one of Suede's daughters, six weeks old now, that was outside with the Ameraucana baby today. I put several of the older chicks outside in the sun today and their pics are below, too.

    Here is one of Lexie and Hawkeye's daughters, 8 wks old, then Gabriel with two of Scout's sons:

    I can't believe that light chick feathered out so dark!! She's gorgeous! How is the darker one feathering out?
