Chicks update

Chicks  @  joceesfarm.blogspot.com


These are the 2 chicks that hatched out in early February.  I wrote about them here if you want to check them out when they were little.  Five weeks later and they have grown so fast.  It is years since I have bought up chicks and had forgotten the speed that they grow.

My daughters have named them.  This one is Davina, or Dave if he turns out to be a boy.

And this one is Cammie or Cam if he is of the male persuasion.  That's Lucy watching over them in the background.

I'm still hoping they are both girls but I have a feeling that Davina is going to be a Dave.  Oh well my neighbour needs a new rooster so he may get to rule the roost next door.

  2. I too had forgotten how fast they grow - our kids had a chicken once upon a time who turned into a rooster. He ended up on a farm, townies don't seem to appreciate roosters early in the morning for some reason, haha.

  7. They look cute and now I wish you good luck that Davina will not turn into a Dave.

  8. Wow they grow fast. I sometimes think about raising some chickens but my husband always talks me out of it.

  9. Looking at them brought back memories when we used to keep plenty of chicks and ducks when I was small. Those were fun days and I love feeding and playing with them.

  10. They look happy and healthy! We've had way too many crowing hens ourselves--thankfully we do (or did?) have plenty of good friends willing to take roosters off our hands!
