I took the plunge and bought six baby chicks yesterday. One container had straight run (little bit of everything, both pullet and cockerel chicks), and another container had assorted reds (again, pullet and cockerel both). I'm not ready for a roo yet, so I picked from a third container marked 'assorted pullets', so goodness knows what I have. I'm assuming they're sex-link of some variety, perhaps gold.
The chicks are temporarily housed in a cardboard box inside the dog crate so Molly and Jethro can't hurt them. Molly's mouth is watering and I'm sure she'd like a little snack.
You'll be seeing more of these cute little chicks in the days to come, and I'm sure I'll be needing help in identify what breed they might be.
