Les little piranhas!

I finally managed to get the wittle beasties on film this morning!

Yay me! LOL

The silkies are now 5 weeks old 
and the rest of the gang turns 4 weeks old tomorrow -
here they are in their new condo
as they were getting too big for their baby brooder!

Amazing how fast they're growing, eh?

Chicken experts, do you see many roos in there?

I know Tank is a boy (the one who still has a chipmunk head!).

Besides the silkies they are all mutts with the same father,
all hatched from green eggs from different hens -
so there are some Easter Egger genes in there.

One chick is a white leghorn x BLRW, she's white
with a black spot on her shoulder.

I can't keep any roos, technically... :-/

You better not stick you hand in there without a treat. You may pull back a handless stump with those ravenous little beasties. LOL
