    Just have the two for now, but have plenty of eggs due next weekend, so I'll have lots of pics to share.
    The silkie chick isn't the smartest chick in the world, and not exactly the friendliest either, but I still like him/her. The cochin is a cocky little monster. S/he rules the brooder of buttons. When there are mealworms, the cochin tramples anyone and anything in the way, and everyone else pretty much lays down and waits to get trampled, lol.

    Cute! That yellow one is tiny! I have a cochin too. She has a tendency to run full speed and not regard her surroundings... oops, there goes her sisters under her feet!

    Holly Molley, how old is the black chick in the first pic. He's a monster chick. [​IMG] And the last pic is cute; but not the first chick I've seen with an attitude though. [​IMG]
    Nice pics., keep us post on Mr/Mrs Addie [attitude] in the long run. [no pun intended] [​IMG]

    Oops, sorry, the little one is a button, the black silkie chick is actually pretty dainty, only about half the size of the cochin chick.
