    My four BLRW chicks went out to the chicken house brooder yesterday. I miss having them in the house where I can see them all the time [​IMG] They are happy with the bigger space which makes me feel better [​IMG]

    Yes I know what you mean...mine are all down in the walkout basement and I hate that I can't see them all the time...they are getting big now with lots of feathers...I'll have to take some pics today as a lady is coming to get some. I have my new silkies in the brooder with them and they all get along great...

    I just took these pictures of my babies. They are 2 1/2 weeks old. The two yellow chicks may carry the Dun gene (had one in another hatch) and their feathers will eventually come in blue instead of red laced (splash.) The Blue Laced Reds always change so much that it is fun to see what they turn out like [​IMG]

    Here are a couple of pullets out of some of the same parents with their adult feathers.
