2 Black Australorps
2 Barred Rocks
2 Brown Sex-Links
I got them at Callahan's General Store on the 25th.
When I was at Tractor Supply the next day (26th) two new chicks mysteriously ended up in my shopping cart.
2 chicks of unknown heritage.
Chicks from the "mixed pullets" bin.
They could be Welsummers, Speckled Sussex, or Barnevelders.
Time and feathers will tell.
I believe in meaningful names for animals.
Well thought out.
Thematic if at all possible.
The theme for this batch of chicks is Great Women in History.
While 8 chicks can't possibly scratch the surface of every great woman in history, it is a microscopic sample of women I think made/make a difference in the lives of humans around the globe.
Mandy has always been a protective soul.
She is ever interested in any baby animal that comes in the house.
These babies are no exception.
