The chicks all seem to be happy and healthy and their personalities are starting to really show. So far 5, Fatty H ilda and Matilda really like being held, while Pablo and Picasso absolutely do not. * We think 5 has an inner ear problem because her head is always tilted to the left. She’s my favorite of course. So sweet!
We have 3 Easter Egger chickens this time around so we are hoping for some very colorful eggs from our chicks in about 20 weeks. I wonder if one of them will lay the highly coveted pink eggs?
This is the first time we have had baby chicks in the fall so we are pretty excited.
Hilda the Easter Egger still totally looks like an owl. I brought her home because I had never seen a grey chicken before. Go HERE to see what she is suppose to look like when she gets a bit older. What a beauty!
For some reason The Girl and I decided all brown Easter Eggers should be named Peter. Don’t worry, she’s a hen, not a rooster. No boys allowed here.
Silver Laced Wyandotte Chicks look like little penguins if you ask me.
Ahh baby chicks! I love you.
I would fill my whole house with them if I could. But I’m pretty sure the HH would have me committed if I did something like that. Plus it would stink quite a bit. Okay, so maybe I’ll just dream about it for now.
Hey – Did anyone else out there pick up baby chicks this fall? What is your game plan for winter?
