Chicks Update: Day 29

The chicks are coming along nice. They have a lot of their feathers in now and their combs are slowly starting to get bigger.

This is the little chick that I am guessing is going to be a boy. His tail feathers are more droopy then the other chicks. He is one of the Golden Laced Wyandottes.

Two more weeks and they should be fully feathered according to our chicken book. Most of our chicks have boy names. So when we do find out which one is the rooster I guess we will have to give it a girl name. So far all four of the Barred Rocks are named Bob. The two Araucanas are named Elwood and Jake. One Rhode Island Red is named Jules. That leaves four left to name.

    We need to do another chicken update, don’t we? All spare hours are presently being consumed by our fencing project. The chickens are about 7 weeks old now and fully feathered. Our chicken book says they start laying eggs at 4 to 5 months, so we have a while to go before the first white, brown, or green egg.
