Baby chicks

All 8 female chicks arrived safe and sound in the post today. Very impressed at how fast they arrived, last time they didn't get here till the Thursday. Anyway they are all in the brooder, drinking, eating, pooping, peeping and sleeping. Ah the life of a chick!

We went for 8 different varieties with only a repeat of another Buff Orpington as we love Rosalie so much. They are Austalorp, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Columbian Wyandotte, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red and a Speckled Sussex.


  1. Cute chicks! I think the weight on my Juni B is probably off since my scale is OLD, and the process was a joke. Her birth weight was probably less than than.

    1. Thanks Sharrie they always amaze me how fast they grow. Well she looked like a large size girl. Hope she is doing well.

  2. Gotta love new baby chicks!
