some chick introductions

As a follow-up to my previous post about starting our chicken-farming adventure, I thought I'd introduce you to some of our chicks. These are just those that we are getting to know best at this point. Only a handful of the 30 it turns out we have. We aren't naming any of them until we know which ones we're keeping, but for now... meet some of our babies!

Little fluffy-face! Such a funny little one this is. A white Ameraucana.

This one is HUGE. Stands nearly an inch taller than the rest of the chicks, and spends its time calmly supervising and getting between squabbling younger chicks. We're calling it the caretaker for now. We think it's an Australorp but it might be a Jersey Giant.

The LOUD one!!! This little Lavender Orpington stands up and shouts. A LOT. And it's ear-splitting.

This little one is one of the quietest. We're not sure but it might be a Swedish Flower Hen. Just stands around observing a lot.

And here she is, one of our adorable pair of Cream Legbar pullets. She's very small and quiet, and also extremely timid.  We know we're keeping her for sure, but we don't have a name for her yet.
