@WingedFish: The one on the far right in your photo (the one you pointed out) seems to have a puff of light-colored feathers on its head. I was trying to say that since it's a blonde (and doesn't have dark feathers on its head... Lucina has dark blue hair, after all) it should be Lissa. but it's your bird, so it's whatev' :3

Don't name them. That will just make it harder for you once they've grown up and your family decides that fried chicken's whats for dinner.

@Ideal_Hero Funny thing, one of the breeds in the group is called a Cuckoo Marans. Maybe it would be fitting and redundant to name that one as such?

Certainly putting Zelda into consideration though.

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.

@Retro Either that or Viridi.

Day 2
Lucina is looking at the camera on the right. In the very back between the black and cinnamon-colored chicks is Peach (she kinda blends into the wood shavings). Viridi is in the middle, she's the one who'll lay the green (or blue) eggs. I hope she'll lay green eggs, so her name will actually fit. The rest are still awaiting names, which will be figured out in due time.

Today they've had their first taste of the outside world, in the form of a handful of dirt (to build up immune system response). Yay for progress!

Am I the only one who thought it was a photo montage of Chiken Burtos?

I really want a pet chicken, I can see us now... Me going down the street wearing sunglasses and my chicken perched on my head wearing little chicken sunglasses, with the chicken bobbing its head to the beat of the funky music coming from the huge radio that is on the back of the skateboard that we're both riding. Yeeeeeeaaaahhhh. I don't even know how to skateboard, but as you could see, this would be a really awesome chicken, he/she would teach me how.

I live in a suburban area, but there's this farm near my house which is pretty much the only working farm in the city. It's fun to go there and just walk around and see the animals, once I even discovered that one of the goats acts like a dog, coming right up to the gate for pettings. But getting back on topic, there is (was?) a Polish rooster there that I called Fred. Unlike the other chickens who stayed in the coop, Fred wasn't about that life. He would just walk around as he pleased and wasn't even scared of humans. I haven't seen him in a while, though... sniff (but then again I only go about twice a year)

Day 3
Untitled
Note: The chicks were only in this box for a few minutes while I changed the bedding in their brooder, and I figured I take a picture without the red light on them so you can see their true colors, literally.
Bottom left corner: Viridi.
Center: Peach.
To Peach's upper right: Lucina.
Bottom right corner: Zelda.
As you can see, half of the flock now have names.

They were quite happy to be back under the warmth.

On a developmental note their wing feathers are starting to come in. You can see the black and white barred pattern on Zelda's wing which she'll have throughout the body come adulthood. Enjoy their cute stage, because within a week they'll go into the awkward "teenage" stage where they have a mix of both baby down (the fluffy stuff) and adult feathers, which makes them look ridiculous.

Let me know if Zelda gets a Triforce symbol on her wing as well.

Indeed. Perhaps she'll become the wisest chicken in the world.

Oh, how cute! I also notice that some of them have patterns on their down; do they retain them as they grow older?

from my experience that is how chicken/roosters behave like when they are born in freedom. like many other animals btw

Yes and no. Some colors such as the black on several of them for example, will transfer to the adult feathering; while other patterns, such as the white on Lucina's body (not including her crest) will disappear.
