    Today I took some pics of individual chicks. We "think" we know what most of them are, but are open other opinions and correction.

    First a couple of group shots under the watchful eye of Supervisor Pooh.

    This is Doc. We think he may be a Silver Duckwing Bantam.

    What did the flock have to say about the new supervisor?

    Mine weren't happy the first time one of the dogs came into the coop with me, I think they all let out a squawk. The second time none of them payed any attention.

    These two roos are Tango and Hei Hei. They are named after Disney characters, by our grandchildren. They are Golden Duckwing Phoenix's. Hey Hey is about 1/3 larger than Tango, but they are the same age.

    This little guy is Boots. We're not sure, but think he may be a Cochin.

    This gal doesn't have a name yet, but she is one of my frequent lap sitters. She's a Speckled Sussex.

    This is the infamous Houdini. She, we think, definitely marches to her own drumbeat. She's a Buff Silkie, but even in that she's different, she's a shade lighter colored than our other two buffs.

    This is Velvet. She's a Brown Leghorn. She is actually our only full grown bird. She is one of only two that we had left from last year. We were going to re-home her with our daughter, but she's special to my wife, so we gave it a try. After spending about two weeks in a crate inside the coop with everyone else, when we turned her out a couple of days ago, she fit in just fine. There were a couple of very brief chest bumps with a couple of the bigger chicks, but other than that, no problems at all.

    P.S. For those counting, she puts us at 100 even.:)

    A couple of our Easter Eggers. The first one is Lacy. My wife loves her color. We though she was a light colored Salmon Favorelle until we noticed that she doesn't have feathered feet.

    This is Bob Ross, named by the grandchildren. We believe he is our only Polish roo.

    I think you're right about the one being a Cochin. The body shape is right.

    Houdini has some awesome wings.

    I think you're gold laced Wyandotte might be a little boy.

    Was Lacy that color as a chick?

    We aren't sure but we think this little girl is a Partridge Cochin Bantam.

    This is my newest girlfriend, Sugar. She is the one I mentioned a couple of nights ago. I posted a youtube video that you can check out to hear her sweet little cooing, purring, or what ever it is.

    Pooh has been in and around them from the day we brought them home. Knowing that he is forever my shadow, I started letting him in the brooder pen when I was tending to them from the get-go. They don't mind him a bit,

    Yes, she has always been lighter colored. It wasn't until a week or so ago that I realized she didn't have feathered feet, just never really paid attention to them.

    Sugar just might be a little boy. See how the head feathers sort of swoop back? Does peep look like it's all legs when it walks away from you? That's usually a boy.

    I know so little about EE's but someone somewhere mentioned that they can be a totally different color as adults. I would have chosen Lacy too as a chick with that coloring.

    I think you're right on the partridge being a Cochin.

    I don't know why I never had any light Brahmas, that color patterning has always been one of my favorites.

    BTW, how many bantams did you get?
