Chick season is over

Chick season is officially over. My baby chicks who were incubator hatched just a couple months ago have graduated from the brooder, to the tractor, and finally to the big coop with the rest of the hens.

The batch of chicks before that (of which there are only two left - three of the six were roosters, and one hen I gave away in place of a hen I sold this spring that turned out to be a rooster) are almost all grown up.

They should start laying any time now. Aren't they lovely? I'm going to pair the blue/buff girls together with their blue/buff brother and see what next year's chicks look like. I'd better get busy on that incubator!

They are my 'barnyard mix' project - Blue cochin + buff orpington. I love the way they look :)
