because SHAMU nagged: the chicks day 12
i'm not sure, but this chick is a BB Red Old English Game bantam. and, i think these white wing bars might mean i have a roo. i asked on the chicken forum but nobody has answered yet. no name for this fella.
this is my favorite chick, named Easter. I think it will be a silver spangled which is a whiteish bird with black spots. this chick isnt afraid of me and doesnt scream when i pick him/her up. its a very curious chick -very alert. yesterday i took them outside to be in the sun for a while and he was very tuned into all the sounds of other birds.
Ski! the polish crested. he's bigger than anyone else. sometimes i wonder if he didnt get put in the bantam pen by accident. a character.
This is "chip" but name might change -named for his chipmunk like markings. the most fragile and insecure of all the chicks. Like dianne said, needs extra love.
