Elly May & The Winter Chicks Update
A quick Sunday morning photo blog post. On my iPhone I took some photos of that pullet who was checking out the nesting box yesterday.
My regular camera doesn't like the cold temperatures, so the batteries will go dead. But I found that if I carry the iPhone, I can take photos with that & at least capture the moment even if my preference is still a digital camera.
The chicks were waisting so much feed, so I used some welded wire to prevent them from scratching through the feed .
It's not pretty but it works.
Now, this chick is one of the suspected roosters - I can even see little wattles forming!
And this one looks to be a pullet; see the difference in comb size & both have single combs?
The following are of this "camera hog" that has this out-stretched neck pose!
Finally, I was able to capture a precious broody hen moment with the chicks snuggled up!
Last but not least, these chicks are busy scratching & digging through the hay pellets looking for snacks.
