Our little flock is growing up. Starting to get fluffy. The Barred Rock pullet actually will eat from my hand. The Silkies look on with curiosity, but aren't that brave yet. They still don't like to be picked up, which is a bit frustrating since we want them to be tame. One of them has a bare rear end. Is that normal? We lost one chick the first week to pasty butt, so I'm afraid maybe I pulled off some feathers when I was cleaning them those first 2 weeks. (?) Still don't know gender for certain with the Silkies.
