Meet the chicks

 I thought I'd share some new photos of the girls.
First:  Micah, our Barred Rock

Next up comes Buffy, the Buff Orpington:  She is the friendliest and likes being held.
 Then, our biggest chick:  Claudia- a mystery breed.  They were labeled as 'Rainbow Layers'  I'm thinking maybe an Easter Egger??
 Last and smallest but definitely the most adventurous:  Eddie   She is also a mystery breed rainbow layer.
Eddie doesn't have the chipmunk stripe down her back as Claudia does but she has a little dark streak down her head and a darker patch on her back.  But it does look like her feathers are coming in a buff color.


  1. I have 2 Buff Orpingtons, full grown now, and they both come right to me and scooch down for pets when I open the coop. Even the Australorps are better than my Rhodies ever were about being touched as chicks and full growns.

    Cutie patooties. Can't wait to find out what Rainbow Layers are...

  2. chicks -they are so much fun-you can't hellp but smile when watching their antics--even when all grown up :)


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
