I am partial to the white one. No other chickens in the coop look like that. This morning when I scattered the scratch, she was so excited she jumped up on my shoulder and shimmied down my arm to reach the source of the delicious treat! Then when my palm was empty, she nestled her belly into my hand to relax for a bit.
But here's the thing.
I'm having trouble believing that these long legs are on a pullet.
More and more, this chick's structure reads "male" to me.
Darn it all!
They are eight weeks old now, and that's when I can start to distinguish. I've been wrong before. I really wish I was wrong here!
Maybe someone more experienced will chip in their two cents on this! Or vote in our new poll!
As far as the other young'uns go, I think the Runner Ducks are looking great!
But they turned out to be the real deal. They're kind of skittish, but very curious about everything! They still whistle and again, I do not know whether they are boys or girls.
So life in the barn is good here at the two month mark.
