Meet the new ladies
One Buff Orpington- pre-named Beatrice by my darling daughter. Why Beatrice I'm not sure.
One Black Sex Link- named Bettie Page by my dear V who was amused about "sex link". Guys....
And, finally, two Ameraucana chicks. They don't have names yet although we're leaning toward other 40's/50's pin up girls. Yeah, I'm a sucker for pretty colored eggs.
They are in a temporary box in Justine's bedroom until V and the boys finish the bathroom and I can set up the dog kennel that will be their more permanent home until they're big enough to join the flock.
I can tell that Bettie is a few days older than the others since she's already got some little wing and tail feathers where the other three are just fluff.
I know, I know, I said I was going to wait until they finished the bathroom. But that will happen today and I was already in that part of town. No sense making two trips... right? Besides, this gives the guys extra motivation to finish.
