Lovely!  I love your little black penny dinosoar!  I have a group that age right now too and they are more fluff than feathers.  They both look good, good leg colour and size.  What beautiful birds, your EOs are lovely too!

Re: EO, Penedesenca and a few other pics

The black pennies DO look like prehistoric little creatures when young! They graduated to the coop "hallway" from the sunporch brooder, along with two older white Silkie chicks. I had a black/partridge Silkie with them but it had to come back inside to the brooder as it wasn't fairing too well after its first night. I got home from nightshift and my BF alerted me to the Silkie's condition, so brought it inside and cuddled it in my bathrobe and fed it drops of water from an eyedropper and a bit of chick starter and it rallied around.

The EOs are just absolute darlings! I love them so much! They are absolutely the friendliest chicks I've ever had. I'm enjoying when I open up their brooder, they run towards me and not away. They climb all over my hand and arm and fly up out of the brooder and I can hold and pet them. It's no wonder they become people's favorite breed of chicken once introduced to them. My red sex-link hens that I first got at Scotian Gold Country Store a couple of years ago (the pic of the hens jumping out of the coop) are very friendly but I think the Eos even surpass them. The Ameraucanas are flighty and nervous and the Silkies a bit timid although not too bad.

I tried to put descriptions with my pics, but somehow messed that up! My egg pic is of a Silkie egg, Ameraucana egg, red sex-link egg (I just call them "the layers", but I should call them the "eaters" because the buggers have taken to eating their eggs!) and the last giant egg is a double-yolker Ameraucana egg. That went into my potato salad. :eat:
