They arrived at the end of April; not soon enough for Madison, and frankly, too soon for Lucky. She could have stayed under the heat bulb for days.
This photo certainly looks like a lot of chicks, but only 5 are ours.
Most went to my boss (12 Black Australops) and three Ameracaunas and a Barred Rock are destined for another homestead. Madison finally got her Silkie, and I am trying for a girlfriend for Gomer, the Old English Game Bantam Red Pyle we rescued from the Fair last year. We won't know for some time if Speck is going to fit the bill...
And shortly after the chicks arrived, we got another "rescue" (more about that later, I have to go to work!)
