    Name update:

    I've decided to call the two whites porridge and pudding!

    I'm not sure which one to call what name though!

    The name "Fizzle" popped in my head when I saw the photos. No idea why.

    Aw I like that name!

    Maybe I will call the little partridge Fizzle I think it'll suit that one quite well :)

    Oh my gosh so cute!

    I love the little montage of photos too, nicely put together :D

    They've all grown up lovely. The blue on the last photo, top right is absolutely beautiful! :eek:

    My blue has nothing on that one!

    This is mine as she's grown since I've had her.

    Indeed there is and will be a lot of cuteness here!

    Thankyou, I'm glad you are following along! :D

    Oh wow that's great! I hope the hatch rate is good for you, good luck :fl

    I can't wait to see them!

    I will be getting more photos tomorrow of my chicks if it's nice weather. They are 6 weeks old today!

    Growth Update:

    The chicks Pudding (chick one), Porridge (chick two) and Vanta (partridge) are all growing nicely!

    I'm in love with how the two whites are turning out, still fingers crossed for females!

    Vanta is a slow grower but that little chick is just a keeper as I want to see how it colours out.

    Here are some photos from 6 weeks, Vanta is 3 weeks.

    On all photos (except the very last one) chick one is left, chick two is right and Vanta is...well, you'll see!

    I can't believe how big the six week old chicks look compared to Vanta!
    Such beautiful photos!
