I meant to do an update on my smallest batch of chicks, showing how each one changed from one week to now; but I moved them outside before I could do that update. I don’t want to traumatize them by catching them all – it’s harder to do once they are out in the coop. I went to their coop with my camera and they were very curious; I think they were hopeful that I had some treats for them. Here are some cool pictures of the babies – they are now 6 weeks old.
They are getting big. I’m a little more able to tell what kind they are. A few of them I’m still not so sure (even with the “teenager” chicks I still have no idea, and they are pretty much adults).
As you can see in some of the pictures above, my adult ladies were watching the photo shoot, wondering if I had any treats for them as well. Here they are:
My “teen” chicks were inside the coop eating instead of watching the photo shoot, so I didn’t get pictures of them today. They have been getting along better with the adults, but they still keep to themselves as a group instead of mingling with the adult hens.
Adorable chicks and lovely hens. We have some around the same age, and then some barred rocks a few weeks older (a month older) and they stay apart in separate groups while living in the same coop. I hope they grow up to mingle a bit more. I have a crowing young rooster in the 7-8 week olds too. Precocious. Not too loud yet.
