I've decided to do a neat little thingy for anyone interested. I'm going to take a picture every day of my chickens that just came in today, from day one to adulthood. I love picture montages, so I'm doing my own.

Before you ask, the lighting is red due to them being under a heat lamp, which just creates warmth instead of the light of a regular bulb. Plus they are in a purple plastic storage container.

A close up. The one on the far right is my favorite; she'll have a funny puffed crown of feathers on her head, which starts from birth as you can already see the little ball on top.

I've already got a few names pending for some of these girls (they're all female), but I'm still not sure exactly who gets what name. On the list is Peach, Lucina, Lissa, Emmeryn (Emm for short), Viridi (believe or not, one of them will lay olive green/turquoise blue eggs), and (maybe) Samus. As you can tell Fire Emblem: Awakening has quite an influence here.

Also, these birds are for eggs and recreational purposes; in other words, I'm not going to eat them, just so you know. :P

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

so glad you are not going to eat them.

can you give them more space in the future? they need to have a space outside under the sunlight. the more space they get the better.

Yeah, but, they would make excellent chicken strips. :P

I love chickies. Good luck raising them, I'll make sure to check the photos every now and then.

I say you should name the best 3 Nayru, Din and Farore.

Oh btw, is the puffy one a silkie?

@6ch6ris6 The container is very temporary. They'll be moved to a big dog cage within a week or two. Then in about a month they'll move into a big shed we're planning to put in the backyard.

@Morphtroid Close, she's a Polish.

Quite honestly I'm not sure what I'll name my favorite. It's between Lucina, and Lissa, since they both have crazy "hairdos."

Seriously, Polish appear like they have a bad "feather day," here's an adult picture to give you an idea.

I'm leaning more towards Lucina though, since I like her more as a character.

I don't get it...

But in any case, I've made my decision. The favorite one is named Lucina. Now just to name the other seven...

@Prof_Clayton Only thing is non of them are male. Besides, if one were a rooster, I'm name him Ike. Because Ike is awesome. Then again there is that whole meme where Ike is obsessed with eating fried chicken... Ah screw it I'd still name a rooster Ike. >:3

If you want chickens as pets and for their eggs.... Having a rooster around doesn't seem like a good idea.

@Morphtroid Trust me I know. I did have one in the past, at a different house. He was an accident, as in we didn't know he was a rooster until it was, uh, too late. But he was very friendly, and would crow every time I came outside since he was excited to see me (I could tell the difference between his regular crows). Only thing is several hens got their backs badly damaged, as a result of too much, um, business. :$

My family used to have chickens when I was a kid and one or two were roosters.
Poor hens, specially the silkies.
