Two new chicks are at home in the coop. A silkie and mille fleur d'uccle are what we brought home. Caring for these two has lessened the pain for my little one of loosing our dog.
Both of these are bantam breeds which means they will be small chickens.
This is the sweet silkie. Just a fluff ball. We hope they are both hens as these were only sold straight run and not sexed.
My youngest has had chicks three times now and can practically care for them on her own. It is amazing how careful she has become since we first brought chicks home. She gets it now and is very responsible with them though she wants to put the white one in her scooter basket and take it for a ride. I cautioned against that. The white one is Daphne and the brown one Millie.
