The Chicks are Now Four Months Old!

My how time flies. And so do my original first flock members.  It seems Hubs needs to put some chicken wire around the inside of the eves on the chicken house, for every morning some of my chicks come diving out of it! The others are flying over the fence of the pen.  Remember my uncle gave me 15 white leghorn/Cornish crosses that are a month older. They stay where they belong, thank goodness.

Anyway, here are some pics of my originals:

This is "Aunt Bea" who may actually be a cockerel. What do you think? I can't find her/his baby picture. "Aunt Bea" is very sweet and is one of two that will let the kids pick up and carry around. We think s/he is a Speckled Sussex?

If you have an opinion on the gender and/or breed of any of the chicks above (even those in the background), I’d LOVE to know it!
