White chicks

Three white chicks, sex as yet unknown, came home with me yesterday. They are 3-4 weeks old.

Some of the parent birds: white bred to white will come true. Another very interesting outing to John's peafowl farm in the East Riding!
The chicks in my brooder cage, with an extra lamp for warmth.

One of the chicks perched on my hand.
