    Now the broody's chicks are 11 days, and brooder chick is 9 days. Not sure about the bantam, maybe the same as the older chicks.

    Ok, who ready for some cute fluffies?
    These are my new hatched batch of spitzies. They are around 3-4 days old.

    I've got an extra small one in this batch, its in the front on the last picture. Sorry they aren't better quality, they dont like being photographed.

    Next is my older set of 5. They are right around 3.5 weeks.

    They were even less cooperative. They were ALL OVER the counter.
    My favorite one of this batch is this one. Look at his nice sharp crest forming!!

    This little one will end up being a nice pet for someone. Shes feathering in mostly white and has feet issues. Im working on correcting the one foot with orthotics. 20190623_133526.jpg 20190623_133533.jpg 20190623_134059.jpg
    Wish i could take better pictures, but spitzies are my wild child in the chicken world.

    I had to go out of town for 4 days. The chicks seem huge now that I'm back....
    The 3 privileged ones out w hen:

    And the orphan in the brooder:

    Their little top-knobs at this point remind me of the children in The King and I:
