Six weeks and counting

The baby Silver Grey Dorking chicks don’t look at all like chicks any more!  They look just like miniature adult hens and roos now.

The hens are such elegant little critters, all tweeds and soft fall russet colors.  The roosters are beginning to give hints of their future adult glory – as you can see from the first picture, they are already sporting gorgeous combs.

Here is a full view of one of the little roos.  You can see the dramatic SGD plumage starting to come into play, complete with some nice iridescence on the wings and tail.  All ten chicks are growing and thriving and we couldn’t be more pleased with their progress.
