Aw, bless them!
Sweet little things.
Are they babies then?
<btw, I am not a chicken keeper, but was as a kid. My 6 lovely hens.>

oh arent they tiny! we got ours at point of lay, so much bigger than that. what sorts are they?

I have a cream legbar which might be a bit big (possibly to be called Pootle) - that is the grey one & a cross between a Marsh Daisy & a Sicilian Buttercup (probably to be called Daicup)which is much lighter/creamish

We also have a refusal on another cross (Daisy/Buttercup) called Ishmai.....but we don't know if it's a girl yet

& DD just came down to ask to go & check to see if they were OK hmm

lol - are they all tucked up in bed then?

Yes they went inside on their own (which is a damn good thing as I have no idea how to get then into the Eglu)

I just need to get them injected for marretts (sp) pdq

I want chickens too envy
surely one should be called walnut?

You'd think wouldn't you?

But no - the Daisy Buttercup is Daicup

& Pootle was going to be fennilily - but I pulled rank

Pootle is going to lay blue eggs & Daicup cream ones......maybe?
