So they are not so cute & little any longer…but loving their sweet chirps heard throughout the day to enjoy. They are growing faster than I can imagine, eating and drinking more than I am able to keep up with. I worry soon they will be able to fly the makeshift coop they are currently in.
I am excited to say (and hopeful) they will be able to be moved to the outdoor coop within the next few days…
I’ve been collecting sweet accessories over the past couple months and have a vision in my mind of expanding the coop area. Not only to make it visually appealing but functional for my idea of keeping chickens.
Wanted to share with you a photo of the sweet little chicks I named One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six!
We never had any more hatchlings after the first six (which is completely fine)! Just was hopeful for another color to add to the mix. All of these sweet chicks will be rehomed, although the kids are pushing very hard to keep “One” as it was our first hatchling & has been handled more than the others & is quite funny to watch!
So we will see – not sure of the sex of any of them, as from what I have read about Silkie’s is that they will be difficult to tell what sex they are for months… I can see that we have both bearded and non bearded silkie chicks though…
To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoox, tracie
PS - Fishtail Cottage is now on Facebook
They would be hard to get rid of once you've spent that much time mothering them!
the chicken poop will be great for your garden:)
