    I thought it would be neat to have a place to share our chicks as they grow from chick to adult.

    I currently have a hen who hatched out 4 chicks. They hatched on 7/13/14-7/16/14. My rooster is a beautiful LF cochin and he was in with several other breeds so these chicks are mixed.

    Here they are

    Hi,
    Currently I have... (Ill start with my oldest and work my way down)

    Hens 6 months old both just started to lay

    •Rainbow/EE she has been laying for 1 week yesterday and has gone broody already!!!! She is in with a polish rooster and only has one egg of hers under her and this morning I just put 2 serama eggs under her that she excepted so hopefully in 19 to 20 days now i hope to have 3 little ones. We will just have to wait and see.
    Rainbow is the rescue hen I bought about a month and 1/2 ago in really really bad shape at a flea market.She is doing so good now!

    • tonto /serama hen just started to lay on Saturday! Her eggs are the two I put under rainbow. To to is in with a serama rooster.

    •dove, fawn/OEG bantam and golden neck d'uccle born 5/23/14

    •Hawaii/LF splash cochin pullet born 6/2/14

    •2 EE's no names yet 2 weeks old

    •2 possible sebrights and 2 possible wyandottes. Not sure yet, all 1 week old bought at feed store as clean leg bantam assortment.

    That's all my chicken for now, I have 2 or 3 silkies coming on Thursday. I want a white, splash and or buff if they don't have white or splash.

    And of course the possible babies under rainbow!!!!!

    Will try to get pics up later, and keep u posted on my 4 week olds and rainbows eggs!!!!

    I currently have 2 Partridge Cochin cockerels, and 4 Partridge pullets, sorry, no pics yet. Also 21 Black Jersey Giants (2 or 3 cockerels, the rest are pullets), 1 Black Copper Marans rooster, 3 golden sex link pullets, and 1 Plymouth Barred Rock pullet. Also temporarily boarding 1 roo and 5 hens for another member, not really sure what breeds they are, except one is a white crested Polish bantam.
    So, subscribe me! Will post some pics later today, but they aren't terribly recent.

    ok, I promised you pics, so I went out and took a bunch today. The first 4 pics are partridge pullets, and the next 4 are partridge cockerels. Sorry for the cockerel pics, they got a little shy when I whipped out the camera.

    All these birds are 12 weeks old. I got them from My Pet Chicken, the original order was for 3 cockerels, and 5 pullets. I cockerel was DOA when I opened the box, and one of the pullets died a few weeks ago when it got stuck between a coop and a wall, so right now, I have 2 cocks and 4 pullets. Plan on getting some blue cochins in the near future.

    So it looks like Maybaline will be a black cochin. What are your guesses for Snow White?

    These are my girls at two weeks old

    From the top left; Heady , a Easter Egger bantam who looks like an owl, Fiona, Easter Egger bantam who looks like a crow, Sissy, a Red Star, Queenie, a speckled Sussex

    My girls are 14 weeks now. The owl turned into a pigeon, the crow is still a crow, Sissy is a giant and Queenie should be a chicken model she's so pretty. They have discovered the deck and they love each other sooo much. When they free range they never separate and love to cuddle in a heap for a sun bath. Still can't tell whose top chick but believe its between Sissy and Quennie. I really hope they stay best friends even when their hormones change & they begin laying.

    I really am not sure, it's feathers are coming in mostly grey with a little white. I think Snow White is a cockerel because he has the most wattle development. He is also very hard to take pics of. Not very photogenic. Here are a few more shots of Snow White maybe you can see the color better on these.

    Welcome to the thread, Lulabell!

    Here are some more pics of my chickens, the first pic is of a Plymouth Barred Rock, 12 weeks old, and she is my baby. Probably my smallest chicken, after the morning feeding she jumps into my lap and takes a nap.

    This is one of my Jersey Giant cockerels, 12 weeks, I call him BigFoot.
