Meet the Cheeps…

Today I drove up to Perth to meet with Sue and Phil and pick up “The Cheeps”.

Last night I just couldnt sleep, it was like christmas eve lol, I was soooo excited.

I dropped the kids off at school, filled the car up with petrol (£1.18 a litre here now – it’s scandalous!) and then set off for Perth.. Its about 35 miles away from where I live and should only take about 30-40 mins at the most to get there, I left an hour and 15 mins early, just incase 🙂

We still have to pick out names for them, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them.

This above picture is the 4 of them in their wee chick transit box 🙂

We have 2 Partridge Pekins, 1 Black Pekin and 1 White Silkie Cross

Once they settled in … they tucked into some chick crumb and had a wee drink of water

 

Then retired to the back of their new home…..

……was it something i said lol 🙂

  1. I have just had 2 chicks hatch from 12 we had in our home made incubator. One of them looks like your black pekin or your silkie. We have no idea what breed it is though as it was among a bunch of eggs we bought from a farm. One of them is a silkie with fluffy black down over its head.
    They are gorgeous arent they, just hope the two we have are females. Oh and the silkie has splayed foot which we are treating with a pipe cleaner brace

    • Hi there beingmaisie and thanks for your visit 🙂

      You are absolutely right they are such gorgeous wee creatures, I do hope that your splint corrects its wee splayed foot, a friend of mine had a chick once who had something similar, she gave it a cardboard slipper and put a sticking plaster around it to keep the foot flat.
