It is really hard to capture the essence of these young chicks. They scurry about, close to their surrogate mom (Rochelle Rochelle), scratching, pecking, jumping up and down the ramp (they now sleep safely upstairs with all the other hens). Anyway, they are adorable and so entertaining!
Three New Grandchicks Waiting to be Named ~ Are They Cockerels (soon to be Roosters) or Pullets (Hens)?
Aunt Arlene, Ian and Grandpa have so much fun determining the chicken names. Just a little hint…they are all characters in the Seinfeld comedy series. It has become a contest to see how obscure a name they can come up with. Any suggestions?
This one reminds us of Mulva ~ our Bantam Cochin who was captured by the Great White Owl…
This one has progressively become whiter since hatching.
The little one in the top left corner has little feathers on its “feet” which leads us to believe it is a Cochin. Pretty little feathers that look like a bustle when they are fully grown 🙂 See Mrs. Choate below…
- Mrs. Choate was very interested in my photographic escapades. Really, I think she was more interested in the mealworms that I share with them when I enter their run 🙂
Dolores, Sue-Ellen Mishke and Rochelle Rochelle. Dolores has now entered her broody stage and is very cranky!
Oh, and there’s Percy trying to get in on the fun!
The beautiful chicken gifts we receive each day. I had to use the gloves to peek underneath Dolores who is in a very cranky, broody state. We are still very grateful!
We normally receive anywhere from 1-3 eggs per day with the four adult hens. Just enough to enjoy a couple a week and share with our friends. Life is good!
