Here's my girl, Monica. My favorite chicken. I sure hope this one is a girl because I am keeping her either way. She is the sweetest and most trusting of all the chicks so far. I am naming them in the order they become my pals. Oh yeah, and I have to be able to pick them out. This one has white lines on both of her eyes, kind of like eyeliner. She also comes running when I come out to play with them. Rachel is the second one to become friendly and she just has white cheeks. So far these ones have been easy. All of the nice chicks are barred rocks and I am not sure why that is. I am happy to get what they are willing to give me though. Ross is the third friendly one and he has a twin. So we have Ross-a and Ross-b. They both are equally happy to be held so I am never sure which one I have. All the other chickens are wild for the time being.
And here are some of the standoffish chicks up on the roost like big kids. Too funny. They don't sleep up here yet but they will before we know it. They are 4 weeks old now and a kick to watch. I do a lot of just sitting and watching their antics. These critters are also a great way to get rid of extra lettuce which in truth is probably why several like me now. I am not too proud to bribe my friends but don't tell them that.
