It’s time to introduce the baby chicks to our viewing audience. I haven’t decided on any names, but then I am not really sure I should. I am already starting to get attached to these young chicks I am planning on adopting out, so naming them probably isn’t a great idea. But here they are one at a time:

Chick #1
Breed: Araucana
Gender: Straight Run (50% chance she’s a she)
Coloring: Grey/White
Egg Color: Blue-Green
Additional: Wins the cutest, fuzziest award

Chick #2
Breed: Rhode Island Red
Gender: Pullet (75% chance she’s a she)
Coloring: Reddish Brown
Egg Color: Light Brown
Additional: She has grown in the most feathers

Chicken #3
Breed: Brahma
Gender: Pullet (75% chance she’s a she)
Coloring: White, feathered legs
Egg Color: Brown
Additional: This breed has cool feathered legs

Chicken #4
Breed: Barred Plymouth Rock
Gender: Pullet (75% chance she’s a she)
Coloring: White/Black
Egg Color: Brown
Additional: I am a little worried about this girl. She is the runt…

Chick #5
Breed: Araucana
Gender: Straight Run (50% chance she’s a she)
Coloring: Brown
Egg Color: Blue-Green
Additional: She looks like she is wearing eye liner

As I mentioned above, the little black Plymouth Rock isn’t growing as fast as the others, so I am keeping an eye on her. She seems to be active though, eating and drinking water. I came home from work tonight, changed the bedding and watched as they all inhaled massive amounts of chick feed. About three minutes I looked over and the feeding frenzy had ended – they were all laying in a pile passed out.
