The babes are on their own!

The momma hen started laying, so she is with her new beau. The 12 chicks are on the own!
They range from dark--almost blue, traditional splash and a few are very light blue.
Very colorful group....Silkies are take a long time to tell whose a roo/pullet....So by Spring
I will be able to sort, pick and choose.....they love table scraps!  One stood on Nessie's hand
the other day  "Hey grampa look!"  She is 6 and has been coming to the barn since she was a baby
I like to start the love of critters early!
