The chicks are almost 2 weeks old now, and they are smaller than other chicks we've had at 2 weeks, but they're adorable. All 8 are doing incredibly well. They are so super speedy, running around all over the place. Usually I would let them out of the broody run around 2 weeks with mum, but as these ones are so small I'll definitely leave them longer. They've got feathers through and some have wee tails. I have no clue as to sex of them and as they are half araucana ( notoriously difficult to tell) I'll have to wait for ages. I'm so hoping for at least 50/50 girl boy.
Here they are yesterday evening, going to go to sleep
This one was still up and jumping around - he's probably a boy!
I think poor Mavis is getting itchy feet and would like to be out, roaming free. Poor thing.
