Remember the androgynous character Pat from "Saturday Night Live" that people were always trying to figure out if it was a he or a she? Our chickies are tired of us looking at them like that. They say they want an identity, darn it! So are they Patricks or Patricias? Any breed guesses are welcome too, of course. These are our first chicks so we're at the beginning of the learning curve. They are somewhere between 4 and 5 weeks old. We got them 3/21/09 from a TSC so we don't know when they hatched. Chicks #1 and #2: [The one on the right is clearly hunched over a little. The roost they are on is new to them, plus the flash disconcerted it. There isn't anything wrong with it.] Chick #3: Chick #4: This one's waddle is already coming in, two flaps that are bright red so we suspect it's a he. It's also meaner than the others. Last night it didn't just bite my hand, it started biting my leg--until it saw my hand with the feed in it, of course. I'm considering naming it Dinner. Just in case you need to see a little more of its tail: Chick #4 again: Chick #5: You may not be able to see enough of the one on the right, but I'm hoping the one on the left is a female. It's such a love, for a young chick. So far it doesn't have any dewlap/waddle/neck folds and its comb is a much lighter pink than Meanie's. We actually have 9 chicks but 3 are the white-ish ones and 6 are the reddish-brown ones. We can't really tell the 6 apart except for the one incredibly soft one, so we are just showing the above pics. They shuffled around so much we couldn't keep track of who had already had their picture taken and who hadn't. So what do you think?
