Peep Progression~

The Rhode Island Red chicks (from this post) are now about 10 weeks old and have been living in the coop with the ‘big’ chickens for over a week.

They are spoiled rotten. Ann is our chicken whisperer… she took this video.

They come running when we are around and peep with happiness.
Come fall they will make us a lot of yummy eggs, well, except for the two that are roosters, they are named Guavo and Popeye.

The Ameracauna peeps are still in the brooder box. They are 4 weeks old and get to play outside  in a small fenced area when the sun shines. They will give us pretty blue/green eggs this fall. Not sure if any are roosters, it’s hard to sex this breed. Time will tell…
