I can not believe how quickly these gals are growing! We just got them on Friday and they looked so tiny and seemed so helpless. A few days have gone by and their wings are showing now, they are taller and boy are they NOSY! I knew chickens were nosy, but I didn’t think it would happen so soon!
I’m definitely starting to see personalities too.
*Dora, Maggie’s chick is the adventurous one. She is the most daring. Jumping to get out of the box they are in. She doesn’t quite make it yet, but I would bet in two or three days she will.
*Ruby & Scarlett are a team. Always together. Scarlett is the leader between the two of them. The twins. They are both Rhode Island Red’s.
*Mary Virginia is the other Barred Rock (the same as Dora), she is quiet. Sits back and lets the others go first. Always wants to be in the middle of the pile when they are huddling.
That leaves the two unnamed ones. The Ameraucana’s. They look like a cross between baby owls and baby turkeys. The biggest one is Chris’. I think it’s going to be between her and Scarlett for “leader of the henhouse”. Chris has mentioned the name Prudence, but he isn’t sure yet. I think he is waiting to see her personality.
For some reason these two are harder to name. They are like Ruby and Scarlett. Always together. If you take one from the box the other starts squaking looking for her sister.
