Bantams!

I went to Seabreeze Hens on Wednesday and picked out 10 silkies, 4 d’uccle, and 4 sebrights. Originally I intended to only get about 6, but since they are straight run I figure it’s possible half are males and I won’t be keeping those. The owner said I can return the males if I can’t re-home them. It has been such a joy to watch the sweet little chicks run around and snuggle down together. I have been outside catching mosquitoes for them, simply for the pleasure of hand feeding them and watching them chase each other around for them. Today I put a little bowl of play sand so they can get some grit and dust bathe. They are not even 2 weeks old yet, so not sure if they are ready for all that. Anyhow, here is a picture,
