The one sitting right smack in the middle of the feed is a little Araucana baby. When she grows up she will lay colored eggs- turquoise and other colors. She is my daughter's favorite so far, although she LOVES all baby animals! In fact, she is a baby animal magnet (sigh). We have had more baby animals around here than we would like, but they have all come here all on their own, except for our horse and our dog (rolling eyes :-) ).
Yep, that is my daughter right in the middle of the baby chicks and she is holding another little Araucana baby.
The little red chickies are Red Stars and Rhode Island Reds. The little black chickies are Barred Rocks. Aren't they adorable?!!! It's been a couple of years since we ordered little chicks and it's always so fun to watch them grow up. Well, at least until they get to the ugly stage where they start growing their first real feathers. Then they are a mixture of chickie fluff and feathers and they look pretty strange, lol! OK, I am off to see if I can get something created while my daughter names the babies. So far she has Ally and Cosmic- Cosmic being Ally's side "chick", rotfl! Hopefully, I will have something to post later on this evening.
