Well, we've had a busy couple of days around here. Eggs hatching, dying, surviving. And today chicks playing.
It's been a wonderful experience (again) and I can't wait to see them grow and find out who is going to be a girl/boy.
But in the meantime, here's some pictures I took today while we were hanging around with them outside...
Tiny. Gosh she's looking amazing right now. She is a frizzle. This means her feathers all stick out instead of down and close to her body. With her getting all 'fluffed up' to accommodate her chicks, she's grown about 2 feet and looks amazing!
We started off with 18 eggs under 2 chooks.
4 were infertile when we candled.
2 were taken by our neighbour for her dinner by accident.
1 died during hatching.
1 died 12 hours after hatching.
1 didn't hatch.
9 survived and are beautiful little chicks.
Yes, you will see more chick photos on here over the next few weeks. Grin.
