Are you ready for so adorable and sweet you will squeal peep? I went and got the girls today, I should have taken a picture of all the chicks in the tub, there was probably close to 100 of them.
Let me introduce you, as you will be watching them grow up.
This is Laverne, a little camera shy. She is an Ameraucana which is also called an Easter Egger, she will lay blue or green eggs.
Here's a better shot of Laverne. Isn't she so cute?
Here is Shirley (ya can't have Laverne without Shirley right?) plus they are both Ameraucana's, I picked Shirley to be a bit darker, I mean she was the brunette right? Who knows as they grow if they will look more alike, but I hope I can always tell them apart. If not, I'll just say "hey look there is Laverne & Shirley".
Here is Shirley again, I love how it looks like she has eye liner on. "Yes I'm ready for my close up".
This is Polly, and she is a Rhode Island Red, she is the same as Stella, so she will get lots darker.
Here's Polly's cute backside. Gotta keep making sure they have clean butts…so far so good. You can see she already has her little wings starting to grow.
Here is Aunt Bea, she is a Barred Rock. She is probably the smallest of all of them right now.
Aunt Bea again, she is just so cute, they all are.
This is Maggie and she is a Silver Laced Wyandotte, she has some really pretty colors already.
Maggie has already decided she might like to be a stamper.
Here they are checking out their new home. I have to regulate the temperature, they don't have a Mamma to crawl under to keep warm, so I have a heat lamp. It is warm during the day still here so I have to mess with it a bit so it does not get too hot. At night I have to put it lower over the tub to keep them warm at night.
We have them sitting on a table on the back porch right outside the window by the kitchen table, so it is perfect I can watch them and…
…so can Toby, he loves them and wants to see them all the time.
Here is a cute little video so you can see them in action.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in. Peep!
