    Hi All,

    The weather had finally cleared and I will be down to the final 3 to stay with me from now on. The other 3 are off to Auntie Carol's this evening.

    Here is the six pack: 1 cuckoo maran hen? (Cookie); 1 Delaware hen (Deli); 1 RIR hen or rooster? (Red); 1 Mystery chick - thought to be a Partridge Cochin rooster (Mystery) last week by the majority who gave an opinion; 1 dark cornish rooster (Buddy) - by the majority who gave an opinion; and 1 chick that we really don't know what he or she is (Who). I am going to keep Cookie, Deli, and Buddy. They are calm and friendly birds and those 3 seem to nest and hang out together.

    Who, who can't find his or her head: [​IMG]

    Red the RIR - nasty little bird that likes to really nail you with her beak - most happy to say goodbye to this one! [​IMG]

    Here is Cookie and Deli - they are always hanging out together and are very sweet girls. Cookie has slightly crooked toes though they improved 100% after I taped them a few days. Her feet are also improving as she likes to roost on the floor level roosting pole in the brooder. [​IMG]

    Finally, this is Buddy - my favorite - he is just such a happy little chicken and he has the cutest expression. When I hold him and talk to him, he chirps at me as if he is having a conversation. I think he is a dark cornish. [​IMG]
