thanks! yeah they are fun. I have one that loves to jump on my arm and sit on my shoulder while i clean or change the water or feed etc. sometimes i just visit with them and this one jumps up my arm. lol I think it is a roo and cuz i love the Dr who series i might call him Dr Who but if it is a girl she will be named Rose, the 10th doctors companion. lol yeah ... well... lol loving it
It earns the name Dr Who because it was the first to explore and fearless almost from the beginning. just kinda struck me it would be a good name.
I also love their happy little musical songs they do. very cool. a couple obvious roos are already stretching their necks and trying to crow! LOL wasn't expecting that so soon. lol
They're so cute! Makes me want to just scoop them up and showering them with hugs, kisses, and cuddles! They grow so fast like dandelions. Love watching them explore and discover the world around them.
a local farmer was culling his large flock and gave me five hens assorted and one buff rooster! they are about 2 years old and might not lay eggs but hey... gonna see what happens. gosh they are beautiful and the breeds are what we already have in our chick family! lol
got two buff hens, one barred rock hen, two silver lace wyandottes I think they are called and the rooster is a buff. He was already crowing about an hour into settling in! lol Startled my daughter. funny
Out of our 26 chicks one buff had developed a splayed leg and just wasn't do well. I tried putting a hobble splint on and it kept pulling it off or the other chicks would. I tried separating it to give it a chance to heal up and get its bearings but it just wouldn't. I saw today it was sitting in the corner again just all listless and looked like some of the other chicks had been pecking at it overnight which surprised me! cuz they all seemed to be ok with 'hop along' as my kids named it. lol Anyway, I had to dispatch it this morning for its own sake. It was going to die anyway so I made a quick end to it. sigh
Nice looking additions you got! Five of my girls are going on 3 yrs old this May 16th. All are still laying the same as they have been since they were younger. You should be seeing some eggs from them in a week or two.
