Maran chicks from DarkBrownEggs' eggs
« on: July 17, 2013, 12:09:06 am »
Maran chicks at 6 weeks. Dashed things wouldn't sit still.  :rant: They now roost onto of what was going to be the quail's apartment instead of going in their own cage. :innocent:

I can't see from those piccies, but they are looking a bit "cockerely"  :o

Where did the extra one go then, David?  There's only 5 here lol.  The second any of them start crowing they are out of here!  when they were first hatched two definitely looked like girls. :'( :'(
