growing fast

This is one of most curious chicks we have this batch, she loves to be held...but not so sure she likes the camera lol. She's a Rhode Island Red 

This little one is the first to come over every time. This is a mix between Ameraucana rooster and Rhode Island Red hen. 
Very friendly, sweet birdie....
even though bigger always nice to the other chicks. Not sure if we have a roo  or pullet yet.

                                            Face shot of same chick, in the background there is a  Barred Rock pullet and the fuzzy toed bantam ( the black and white ones )...a production Red pullet and same Red pullet as the first shot on left....way in the back is another Ameraucana Red mix also not sure if boy or girl...
