We had some baby chicks hatch this week again. I’m hoping for more hens, since we ended up with mostly roosters last time.
There are six in total this time.
This little guy is about half the size of the rest and has fuzzy feet, so I assume our Silkie rooster has managed to fertilize some of our eggs finally. There is one other with fuzzy feet too (though he’s bigger, so obviously got the hen’s size). The rest would be Ameraucana crosses from our other rooster.
The girls like the little yellow one the best. I think because that’s classically what they look like in their stories and such. (The classic white Leghorn hen starts out as a yellow chick.)
It will be neat to watch them grow and see how they feather out. I love baby chicks!
