The Cutest Chicks of All!
This is one cute chick! (I mean the one on the left!) Charis meets a three-day old baby Naked Neck.
Awww! Charis kisses a baby chick!
Two cute chicks! Monique and Charis gaze raptly at the chicks.
Charis touches a chick's beak.
Mimi holds her favorite Ameraucana (which reminds me of my good hen Pepita when she was a chick). Didi has already named it: Pepi-two!
Kara holds another Ameraucana chick. Sadly, we found a dead chick when we went out with Monique and Charis. We aren't sure what happened, but the others all seem happy and healthy.
One of the Naked Necks eats a dead moth that it found. They are great little foragers--and ravenous, too! Another one caught a dead wasp, and half a dozen of them chased it all over, trying to grab the wasp, before the victorious scavenger finally gulped down its prize.
