Now the run isn't as big as I would have liked, but it's enough for the little chicks to scratch around, and for mum to get some fresh air.
We have 3 types of chick. Their father is the same - Rhydian, but their mothers vary. Two brown eggs hatched, then two of the white Silky eggs hatched.
From the brown eggs came the brown chick with the striking markings it's a typical brown Isa I think, with tan legs and skin and brown feathers.
From the other brown egg came the white chick. This chick has the same type of feathers like the brown Isas except they are white, but has black skin like the other Silkies.
The youngest two are definitely Silkies - typical scruffy feathers, big black eyes and black skin.
While I was taking photos, mum wanted to get in on the fun too!
Queenie is looking a little tired and bedraggled, but hopefully once they are all integrated she will fluff back up!
