All Pullets, We Hope

It's been a while since I posted any pictures of the chicks, so here's an update.
Pullet word origin: Middle English pulet, from Old French polet, diminutive of poul, cock, and poule, hen, both from Latin pullus, young fowl, young animal, chicken; see pau-1 in Indo-European roots. Emily got in the coop to try to catch some of the chicks. We want to be sure they know how to use the watering cups before we remove the small waterer they're used to.
Thomas is holding "Creampuff," the white-crested black Polish.

Emily has "Cleopatra," what we hope will be a female Egyptian Fayoumis.

Our "chicken cam" to keep an eye on them--in the heat, with snakes, other predators, and just because they're funny to watch.
This is a picture that I took from the "chicken cam."
