My hen has chicks!

Post by Perocore on Wed Jul 13, 2011 4:29 pm

My Austrolorpe/Rhode Island Red chicken hen, Nora, has successfully hatched out 4 little chicks! Two of the eggs where layed by Nora, while two where layed by our Golden Comets. The chicks are named;
Pippi-the second chick to hatch, Pippi is all very light, but with a darker head.
Cleo-the first chick to hatch, Cleo is very independent and fiesty, and is all light colored
Bumble Bee-named for the stripes down her back, Bumble was the third to hatch, and will probably end up mostly brown.
Otter-Otter is the most dazzling in coloration, mostly a dark, shiny black with a green sheen, Otter also has a white belly, and then is speckled light fawn/brown throughout her feathers.

All of the chicks are very sweet, and very very tame. I'll post pictures once I get some!

No! Don't get a snake...don't you here all those horror stories about people getting eaten by their beloved constricters? Tarantulas, on the other hand...go with a tarantula!

I used to have a boxer, Princess, who had to be put down to sleep, my sister's fish died and my brother's fish died. My brothers, sisters, and my hermit crab died, my brothers lizard died, be4 I was born my mom and dad owned a cat and a dog, and we had like about 100 fish in this big tank, but eventually they all died somehow, oh, and 2 shrimp with the 100 fish. So yeah big history, lol

My grandparents owned a farm,not sure if they still do old age makes it harder,and they owned geese,chickens,ducks and that kind of stuff...I still remember when I had a fear of baby chicks.I wouldn't even hold any of them.But that sure changed by the time I left.They're really fast growers.We were only there for two weeks and the chicks went from cute and fluffy to starting to grow feathers.

Aren't tarantulas spiders just bigger and more colorful?

Spiders have evolved with more parts than neccessary so that they are less likley to be killed off for losing a limb or two. -nerd face-
