I used a lot of self control and only came home with 4 instead of 20.
You have 60 seconds to guess the breeds.
Starting ...right now......!
Here is a hint;
The word Blue is included with the breeds.
Here are some of the parents.
Can you guess these breeds ?
Here is the mother of two of them.
My chicks had a harrowing ride home. We saw a blue car that went of the road and crashed into a snow covered guardrail. The family was trying to dig themselves out of the mess with their hands. I had a shovel so I pulled over to help and put my emergency flashers on. The peeps stayed in my front seat looking at my cow magazines while I helped with the rescue mission.
I took the peeps to my local library so I could show my librarian and get them their very own library card.
I also had them blessed by an ex priest so they would all be pullets.... and stay pullets!
For you new comers, my poultry tends to begin as females and then turns into males....
Really. So even though the hatcher of the chicks said these are sure to be females, I feel even better now that a former priest-turned-handman has blessed my new baby flock.
Then we slid home and I put them in their new brooder.
They ate and drank and walked around for 15 minutes and then collapsed into a heap and fell fast asleep.
Have you guessed the breeds yet ?
Want to know ?
Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and Blue Copper Marans. 2 of each.
The black ones are the Blue Marans
A real Blue Monday !
What do you have in your brooder?!
