Chirps From The Barnyard #2

The chicks have grown quite a bit since their last update. My brother Mark remarked the other day ... "picking them up, they feel like tiny turkeys or something!" They do. They're plump little things! They're starting to lose their baby fluff and grow new, adult feathers. One gray chick named Margaret (After Margaret Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility) has sprouted white wing feathers. (?) We even have two chicks - Egg-gret (an invented name) :) and Lady Catherine De Bourgh (From Pride & Prejudice) - who have feathers on their little feet!
Here's a video:

Some of our other names - for those who are interested - are The Black Princess - Mark named her after the Black Prince of English history - Anne, (Persuasion) Caroline Bingley (Pride & Prejudice) Georgiana, Elizabeth and Jane (Also P&P.) :) We'll be adding names as they grow more unique. Usually we can always tell the adult chickens apart - sometimes the chicks look exactly the same, if they're from the same breed of chicken. :)

Love & Hugs!


  1. * gasp * Julia, they are SO adorable!! And might I add, I am rather jealous of you. =P I want chicks so bad, but we live in a neighborhood, so I don't think we can get any. =(
    But I love the names! They are so neat! =) I think my favorite though is Lady Catherine de Bourgh. =P That just struck my funny bone. Hehe!
