Baby Chicks!
« on: July 29, 2012, 21:18 »
Yayyy!
Today (day 23) I went up this morning to find one little chick poking it's head out from underneath mum.
This evening I went down again to find 5 more  :D
So far I have 4 black with a yellow chest, one  black speckled and one yellow with a brown chest.

you did well to not disturb mum which is what I always recommend (hard as it may be not to peek) and really looking forward to seeing more photos of all 7 chicks  :)

She's being a very good mum for a first timer and she does growl at me when i try and feed them and calls them over to sit under her feathers when i'm cleaning the hutch so it is hard to get photos but here are some :)
