Chick 1 and Chick 2

The chicks are getting big. I think they will be bigger than all of our other hens. Still not sure of genders on these two, we have been guessing one hen and one rooster, but we will have to wait and see ( or hear the crow). They have not only develped blue iridescent feathers but have also gotten some pretty reddish orange feathers as well. They color will still develop for another month or so. Jezebel, the brown easter egger, has molted and her plummage grew back in quite nice but interestingly enough a lighter shade of brown than she was before. The weather has been cold and is staying cold. We are back to having to thaw out the water bowls for the chickens and bunny bottles as well.
