Hello I was out taking pictures of the "teens" this morning. These are my first chicks that I ever had, and the majority of them came from Meyer Hatchery with the exception of two Cochins which I got locally. But anyways here are the chickies! (And of course the other hens out there didn't want to miss out on having their picture taken!) So here is Cora my Barred Plymouth Rock, she is the friendliest of them all and loves to come sit by me Then this is Farrah, my black bantam Cochin who happens to have gold lacing on her neck. She is a sweet little one and very smart. And my puffy cheeked Easter Egger, Marigold. Marigold used to be very outgoing but since I moved them out to the big coop she has withdrawn some. She's extremely curious of everything The my mixed bantam Rainy, is constantly broody and wouldn't go out of the coop to play with everyone else so this is what she did while the chicks were out: And an up close look at Rainy: And also this one when I kicked her off the nest, I love her little hairy legs xD Here is little Speckled Sussex Zeus... who magically turned into a boy And Lavender the Welsummer She likes to eat people... when I hand out food, while all the other chicks go for the food, she wants my fingers! And she is very bratty but I love her anyways And Chenoa who is a Sumatra. Chenoa is very shy and mysterious. She doesn't hang out with the other chicks all the time and likes to be able to do her own thing. Compared to what most people say about Sumatra's, I think Chenoa is very docile And she is such the sweetie pie And here's Mable, a buff bantam Cochin. I think she looks like a pigeon in this picture xD And Mable again: And little Marigold checking out the nest boxes Zeus taking a nap Zzzzz Feeding Frenzy Lavender looking at something that I couldn't see... And does anyone else have a problem with flies? I do but then I got this fly tape The onto some of the big chickens: This is Claire a mixed banty And Chloe, a red sex link: And Tinkerbell, Chloe's "sister". They are debeaked, we didn't do it, and I never would. But don't worry! It may look bad, but these girls are the friendliest chickens ever, and they both get along just fine! Primrose, another mixed bantam. She goes broody alot and this morning I thought she was trying again, so I kicked her outta the nest box and later on I see she was just laying an egg... oops Chloe's feathers Red, my mutt roo who is such the little cuddler and an overall sweet boy. I put him in with the chicks last week to see what he would do, and he LOVED them. He followed them around, ate with them, and tried to mate them.. but if the objected he listened politley and simply walked away. I love this handsome boy! And my favorite picture of them all is Chenoa's toes. I love them! I don't know why either... And I forgot! Last night I took the baby pics! Lily the silkie (unsure of gender and color) Comet the other silkie (again gender and color unsure) And Emily Rose (unsure of gender) who hatched a week ago from Red and one of those bantams Oh! The babies are 1 week old and the "teens" are 11 weeks old. The only chickens not pictured were Lacey and Athena but visit my page if you wanna see them! Thanks for looking!
