July 17 – one of the chicks, after they’ve settled in.  The Rangers (also known as Colored Rangers and Label Rouge, as they are a French breed) come in three colors – a buff, a red and a tri-color.  We plan to keep a rooster and one of each color of hen to raise our own batch of chicks now that I have an incubator.  They were hatched on Bastille Day, so I plan to name the ones we keep French names.
