The chickens are all present and accounted for. They even look like real chickens now, with tail feathers and everything. They are 10 weeks old, big enough to explore outside the pen, with adult supervision, of course.
I think we may have a rooster here. We have to decide whether to keep him or trade him in on an older hen. He seems to be pretty good at his job so far, even flapping his wings at a visiting dog. (Note the red comb and wattles: chicken keepers, what do you think?)
This one's a hen for sure - pretty baby, eh?
