The bantam babies are hatching. They’ll probably all be yellow or black or some combination of yellow and black and it will be a few weeks before they begin taking on their colors. It’s going to be such an interesting mix. So far, there are 4 that are predominantly black and one that’s yellow. I’m guessing the yellow one may be Pearl’s baby since she’s the only full size chicken we have in there and this baby is way bigger than the four black babies.
They love to climb up on top of their mom . . or whichever chicken they think is their mom.
If I get too close, they will try to hide in the mom’s feathers.
I couldn’t get the little black ones to be still long enough to get a decent picture of any of them.
Probably every day for the next week or so, there will be a couple more babies hatching . . can you say “chicken overload”?
