Pictures of the New Grandchicks! ;)

I should have known that there would be more than one!  Here are the latest picks of the new Grandchicks. ;) 

The first to arrive was this little butterscotch colored fuzz ball.  It always amazes me how they can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, when you pick them up! :)

The next day this little guy was waiting for Farmerboy in the hen coup.  He (or she) reminds me more of  Davey in looks but has a pumpkin colored spot on the left side of his face.  The color of his down makes him look like a little penguin! :)

Introductions were made...   Lil' Butterscotch didn't seem to thrilled with sharing digs, since she (or he) was a whole day older than the mini Penguin! LOL  But later in the night, they settled together fine.  I had to put Davey into another cage, since he is way larger than these two.  Although I must say, he didn't act like they bothered him much.  But... Davey tends to believe that he is descended from ducks and is much to wild with the  water dish for these little peeps! ;) 

After getting home from work yesterday, this tiny little lump named Coal was waiting for me.  She (or he) is half the size of the other two.  It made me a little nervous to place her in with the other chicks, but I am happy to report that all three are getting along famously!

I was  informed last night by Farmerboy that one more egg had a little hole started in it yesterday.  So... there might be one more to add to the group tonight.  Even though I enjoy this little distraction to everyday life,  my hopes are that this will be the last addition to our little flock! ;)
