the baby chicks are doing great...

I know I shouldn't play favorites, but just look at this face....

...and the poufy hairdo...

And, if only you could have heard the indignant peeping when I dared take her/him away from the others...

...your heart would melt too!

Murray McMurray Hatchery always sends one free rare breed bird, and I'm guessing this is it. I'm thinking either a Silver Polish or a Crevecoeur ~ can't wait to find out.

  2. he is such a gorgeous chicken! The hairstyle is quite something - a bit like our poodle after he's had a trip to the doggie hairdresser - we call ito the apatosaurus look - poopasaurus - you have chickasaurus!

  18. A free rare bird would be fun! We got ours from IDEAL Poultry here in Texas, and we got three, free naked neck roosters instead. We're down to one now, and he has no idea he was unwanted--he definitely rules our roost! But I sure would like one with a fancy hairdo! It seems especially fitting for Texas--you know, big hair and all! :)

  30. Adorable! Thank you for sharing! It's been a while since we had chicks and I do miss them. This AM when I was at the post office, I could hear peeping from the back room and knew someone's order had come in. :o)

  33. What a cutie! I am just starting out with chickens and am wondering...do you order chicks every Spring? Do you raise them all for eggs, or are some strictly for meat? I appreciate any "chicken advice" that you could provide!

  34. Be careful. McMurray hatchery sent us a crested breed as our "rare breed" - all the other chickens thought she looked funny, so they pulled all her head feathers out... and then they thought she looked funny bald, so they pecked her bald head to death. If you see the other chickens start pulling his/her crest feathers, it might be a good idea to separate them.
