Chickens in My Pantry! :-) (lil update)

Six of our eight eggs hatched today, and the other two have pipped...Hurray!!

Two bantams of unknown breed, one araucana (or x), and three others(regular size brown eggs, don't know what breed) so far. The other two eggs are regular sized brown eggs as well.

I think the pale yellow one(actually nope, this one isn't a bantam!! lol, it's one of the other golden ones:) and I know a the golden one with feathers on it's legs are the bantams.

This striped on is the araucana...
The yellow one is our feisty one so far. It peeps LOUDLY and kicks when you pick it up. The others are quite calm.
I can't wait until the cousins are all well and can come see them! :-)
UPDATE: :) Yesterday evening number seven hatched and he/she is as loud as the other six put together LOL. Number eight hatched in the middle of the night! I'm so happy they all hatched, we were told to expect about 75% but the boys were praying for them the whole time:) More pics coming soon...

How fun! I bet the boys are loving those. What is in store for their future?

They are having fun. I really have to watch Joshua though, he tends to squeeze, or drop, no in- between... :-{

As for their future, i've been informed by J that they are strictly pets (a.k.a. egg layers, assuming we have hens:)
