    So I had to go to the feed store for more chick feed... and since we lost 2 last week, I thought about replacing them and ended up with SIX nice-sized pullets. They look to be a week or two older than my original 5 at home, but they're getting along great! I'm posting a few pics! :D

    I picked up 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Speckled Sussex, and 2 Silver Wyandotte. My boys & I have been enjoying putting them out in the fenced-in area of our backyard. And they seem to like us, too... climbing & flying from the coop up to our hands, arms, shoulders, head! What fun! :)

    They are very pretty and still fluffy enough to be babies.

    @Captain, the 2 we lost had one side of their neck swollen. Someone here suggested it may have been a problem with their crup. I got these new ones at a different ranch & feed supply store. They had a broader selection & their pullets were a little older.
