    We've named them now--I didn't want to until I was sure they'd make it through the first week--and they're getting huge! Especially the Cochin.

    Adrienne now (at about 3.5 weeks)--look at that little beard!

    And even big chicks need naps...

    Hope you've enjoyed this chicky moment from The Menagerie!

    I cant bring myself to name mine because I know I will eat them at some point. Probably not the sumatra though, he wouldnt make a chicken nugget.

    my problem is I cant get new chicks until I thin the flock a bit, plus farm raised chicken is awsome. I still spoil them though, yesterday I spent 2 hours picking wild berries and I gave them all the ones that were almost ripe.

    Oh I definitely am not eating mine (that was someone else's response)--with those sweet little features?
    Besides, those fluffy toes would stick in my teeth!
