More cute pictures...

Getting used to eating from the feeder

This little fellow took a nap on his back...

... but usually they just go face down in the sawdust! Wouldn't you just love to be in the middle of this sleepy pile?

It's amazing how quickly they are developing. If you look closely you can see that their wing feathers are growing already!

This is one of the Blue Silkies. Curiously Silkies have 5 toes.

This is 'Beaky', a Porcelain D'Uccle bantam & the first chick to hatch

Youngest son has named this Chamois Polish Frizzle bantam 'Big Bird', because it looks like it's just stepped out of the set of Sesame Street!

I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment, hence the picture update & no gushing post about the joys of Mother Henhood as you might expect from me! More to follow when I'm feeling better...


  1. Hope you feel better soon. The chicks are adorable. Can't wait for ours to hatch.

  2. I really do love that little silkie, Big-birds cute and beaky too. Ahhhh they're all gorgeous.

    Hope your feeling better, hang about near the heat lamp with a cup of tea and you'll be right as rain.
