Olive Egger Chicks update

Just a quick update for those loving all things chicken…
my Olive Egger chicks have integrated seamlessly in with the older hens.
You may remember them back in the day...

And when they graduated to the brooder

They are even catching up to the older ladies in size.
I marked the Swedish Flower hen so you can see which one she is and how the chicks are nearly the same size.
It seems I have 3 roosters and 3 hens of the Olive Eggers.
Though 2 of the Roos have pea combs they are obviously much larger than the 3 hens.
Now I want to hatch some Cream Legbars or even just get some Easter Egger chicks for more blue eggs.
My current Easter eggers are getting older and I do love having a variety of colored eggs.

Aren’t they pretty…

Okay, enough chatter from me, off to work I go.
Have a wonderful day, it looks like it will be sunny after a couple days of rainy weather.
