First snow in October! Real snow too, big swirling flakes that are sticking around for a little while. The Caped Crusader doesn’t wait for me to distribute the food.These are the four middle chicks, having a snow day in the greenhouse. Snow is pretty much rain, only quiet. The co-mamas and the 7 Silkies. Adorable. They’re so tiny. I’m in dread of stepping on one, since they’re so small and brown and hard to see. Luckily Marshmallow is fierce. She runs off any of the other chicks and hens, so I know these little ones are getting enough to eat.
There’s a cuckoo. Apples’ chick is large than the few days lead she has on the others, and is probably a Silkie cross.
