Chick Overload : At 5 Weeks!


In case you couldn't tell, we are thoroughly enjoying our chickens this year.  Our White-Crested Polish chicks are the show-stoppers.  Everyone loves watching the "hair" develop.  They're so funny to watch, too.  I mean, how can you not absolutely love a couple of characters like this?













Our Buff Orpington Ladies are quite beautiful, and are the biggest of the hens at this stage.





Miss Barnevelder is looking quite pretty in her dark colors.













I love the speckled pattern of our Speckled Sussex.




Those are our Red Cochins in the background.  Their feathers are still developing and they don't have quite as much feathery action, as does our White Cochin, on their legs and feet just yet. 




Our Blue Cochin, it turns out, is actually the White Cochin I just mentioned.  Either way, she's a beauty!  Look at those beautiful full-feathered feet and legs.
