    I swear they're bigger this evening than they were when we picked them up this morning!

    We're first time newbies posting here, and first time newbies with chickens. I spent a couple of months pouring over posts here and elsewhere and at last the local chicken lady emailed me that she had three day old chicks for sale. We drove an hour to pick them out and brought home 3 Welsummers, 1 Barnevelder, and 1 Naked Neck Turken. My 14 year old son surprised us all by getting up before 8 on a Saturday to ride along, and then absolutely fell in love with the Turken who was not on our original list. I had to let him bring one home to try. Thanks for all the chicken inspiration everyone [​IMG]

    Here is a picture [​IMG] Tomorrow they move into a slightly better set-up and hopefully we can stop that sitting in the food business.

    [​IMG] They're so precious! The only way to stop dish sitting is to get a feeder they won't fit in.

    We went away today, and just came home. They MUST grow substantially every day. I told my hubby that tomorrow they MUST go out in the coop. They somehow outgrew the brooder, today! It must've been the grass I dug out of the yard yesterday for them! LOL![​IMG]
