firstly, they look older than seven weeks


I think she meant the second lot that she got from the preschool (different from the ones in the photos above) were 7 weeks. The ones in the photos above are 21 weeks and they were the ones she posted about earlier.

Ok, now they are 21 weeks old and still no crowing so all looking real good!!!
What a shame my 4 new little chicks from daughters preschool didn't follow the girl trend. They are about 7 weeks old now (I think), and it is very obvious that we have chosen 3 boys.

Sorry caladenia, I could have worded that post a little better.
Thanks chookstarter, I have now edited to add that the photos are of the 21 week olds.

I haven't got any good photos of the 7 week old preschool chicks yet, as soon as I do I will post some.

Cheers
Kylie

Congratulations - what a great outcome! Thanks for letting us know. :biggrin:

I am always in 2 minds about entering the final outcome beside the links in the Index (viewtopic.php?f=23&t=7967643) in case it spoils the suspense for people who like to follow the story right through... :P
