Goodness they have grown - must be all the good "grub" :lol: :lol:
I love that they still look a bit fluffy and not all feathers
I currently have no chickens due to travelling

I think the silkies will stay fluffy... as for the lavender araucana and the pekin, their fugly stage seems to be getting worse! The blue araucana never did get fugly, and she is just gorgeous!!!

Amazing how fast they grow, isn't it? A very handsome bunch of chicks!

Seven weeks and still looking fairly ramshackle (apart from Blue)

Three boys and Blue

I so hope Blue is a girl... she's far too pretty to be a boy!

Yes I have to agree, Blue is gorgeous! What breed is the boy on the right of your first pic - I love his colours too. :)

He's the one and only Pekin... I can't remember what colour Chicabo said he was.... He'll be for sale if anyone is interested though :)

Yes, they are aren't they :shock: :shock: ... I'm surprised she is still being such a good mum, though I haven't seen them try and jump on her back for a while :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
