baby pix

It's odd how they all look so different but are all supposed to be Ameracaunas. I hope they all still look different when they grow up! Then they can have real names instead of Bandit I and Bandit II  :)
One (or some?) keep finding new ways to get out of the barn, then crying piteously to get back with sisters and mama. I hope the rest of the flock doesn't hurt them if they keep getting out to explore!

The yellow baby I have named Alexa, so far the others are Bandit and Smudger (I and II).

I had a broody hen for over a week, she was very devoted to the idea. So I bought 5 Ameracauna chicks (colored eggs in fall! yippee!) from the feed store and slipped a couple under her wings each night. She adopted them without a murmur and seems quite proud of herself ROFL! They are so adorable, even more so when I don't have to stress out about if they are warm enough or is that heat lamp gonna fall....
