Basically they are all mutts but IMO
they make the prettiest birds!
Here are a few of the cutest babies!
This is the last one born, a bit of a surprise actually -
and he/she is huge!
Same chick, different view -
it's silver, cream, black and dark copper...
Super le cute fluffball!
Another of my favorites,
look at those stunning colors!
Blue/steel grey with a white tummy,
a white beard and white under the eyes.
I've never seen one like this before :)
Same chick, she needs a name don't you think? ;-)
This one is the oddball,
hatched from a white egg
so mom is a white leghorn and dad
is a blue laced red wyandotte.
We call her Dottie, but with my luck
it'll be a Spot!
I adore this little cutiepie,
she is cream colored
with a silver back and a copper hat!
And lookit the giant beard she has! :-D
Still the same chick,
because she's just so photogenic!
Another fat fluffball,
looks like a bearded chipmunk - lol!
This is one of the silkies born on Jan 20th,
she has craaaazy feathers growing in -
kinda curly and silly lookin'!
Her dad has some frizzle genes so that explains it!
I'll post more pics next week...
One of the new chicks isn't doing well and I doubt it will survive the next few days, so sad... It was too weak to hatch on its own, I helped it and everything seemed fine but now it's going downhill. Weak, breathing fast, droopy wings, not eating or drinking, eyes closed most of the time... Poor thing. I have to let nature take its course, I should have not touched that egg in the first place.
Please learn from my mistake!
