Putting them in the coop enabled us to enlarge their brooder guard
I purposely gave it higher walls because it's been cold and very windy here. They adapted quickly...
Since then they've grown quite a bit. Following are the latest photos, taken this morning. They are 18 days old ...
Two Barred Hollands on the left, Ameraucana on the right, everybody else in the back. All wondering what that flashy box is all about.
The red brooder light makes it difficult to show their colors well. That's an Ameraucana in the left foreground, Welsummer behind it on the right, Delawares behind.
They are feathering out nicely, as this Delaware chick shows.
Also starting to grow their combs. Look closely at this Welsummer chick's head.
The little black Barred Holland chicks are no longer black, but starting to develop their bars. They are the smallest, but boldest of the lot.
Welsummers and Ameraucanas. They are all definitely starting to look like miniature chickens.
