Oh, what a week it's been! Dozens of runs back and forth into the coop, all hours of the day and night. Stressing over one case of pasty butt and one chick bullied into despondency. It goes without saying, it's a major relief to say that all the chicks are alive and well!
I am also very pleased to announce our chicks have been breed identified, thanks to the help of Lisa Steele of Fresh Eggs Daily (gratuitous blog/facebook/pinterest shout out!!!) and the knowledgeable Catherine Alderman. Knowing who is who left the door wide open for the fun part: naming!
The last entry, I introduced you to Kevin; the White Crested Black Polish chick named after the girl-bird-first-believed-to-be-a-boy in the Disney/Pixar movie Up. Kevin still remains very distinguishable, both in looks and personality. She is a sweet, calm, timid girl.
