The chicks are growing quickly! They no longer resemble little balls of fluff, but have developed real wings and tail feathers. They eat an amazing amount of organic crumble feed. We have 4 buff orpingtons, 4 ameraucanas, 2 barred rock, and 2 rhode island reds. All are adorable. When raising chickens a couple years ago overseas, we unintentionally purchased a young rooster then had to change her/his name from Bonnie to Bonnie Prince Charlie. He is still ruling the roost at my friend’s farm in Portugal. I’m hoping all 12 of these little chickies are female since the goal is eggs, and roos can be aggressive. We won’t know for sure for a few months when they either lay or crow!
One little chick resembles a baby owl so much that we may have to name her Cindy Lou Whooooo. 🙂
