It's hard to believe we got chicks a week ago and I haven't posted about them yet! Man, I've been busy.
The chicks actually came in last Sunday, luckily the mail woman was at the post office when they came in. I didn't expect them until Wednesday so I scrambled to get things set up.
We got 11 meat birds (dark cornish) and 6 egg layers (a few assorted breeds). We ended up getting 2 mystery chicks.
We have 3 americaunas. This one is silver and very pretty. Since one of the americaunas is one of our mystery chicks, we aren't sure this silver one is a girl. I sure hope so! We named this one Dusty Miller.
Another Americauna that has tuffs of feathers under it's eyes. We named this one Sweet Cecily. I also know we have 2 speckled sussex, and 2 silver wyandottes who are with our friend right now. We split the order with a friend and wanted to make sure they didn't end up with any of our meat birds, so they have a few of our egg layers until they get older.
The ducklings have grown a lot! Look how big this one is. I think they will be moving outside in a dog kennel soon.
Here they are on their first field trip outside, this was a few days ago. They sure do make a mess in their brooder!
