Easter Babies

I got these babies on April 16, 2014.
The label on their cage said March 25, 2014, so I am guessing that was their hatch date.
The are a naked neck, Blue Andalusian, and a Cuckoo Maran.
I really wanted the Maran since they lay dark chocolate colored eggs.
I wanted the naked neck because...it's got a naked neck.
The blue was just because three is a good number of chicks.

Our hens are getting older and we've had losses over the years due to age, predation, and heat (in the larger breeds) so I guess these girls will fill in for the ones that are no longer with us.
They're growing like weeds. Literally, visibly bigger each morning than the one before.
