Spring Peepers


Picked up my chicks from my B-I-L this evening. 4 dozen eggs in the incubator netted me 27 puffballs.


I'm guessing about half to two-thirds are naked necks.  Max thought there was something wrong with them when they started hatching.  Poor bald necked things.  Only 4 have the striped down their turken parent sported, the rest are solid buff of the orphingtons...except for one...

I call it "Token".  I'm guessing the lone turken rooster did his best to cover all the orphington hens, plus what the turken hens laid.  It will be interesting to see what these little fuzzballs turn into as they feather out.

There's the one sporting eyeliner as well.  Cute little buggers.
