Ten little hens...

 

 

Hello! I'd like you to meet my family's first flock of chickens!

We got all 10 of them from our local Family Farm and Fleet on March 28, 2017,

and now at 4 weeks, they are almost to move into their coop! it seems to go by so fast! 

with out further ado....I give you the Ten Little Hens!

I let them outside for the first time...very funny and cute to watch them roam around in their new world!

 

 

 

                     Marmalade was very interested in the camera!

 

 

 

                                                                                        Nibbles is that one chicken who loves to just sit by you and cuddle...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                                          There's that camera hog again!

 

                                   

 

 

 

At one point, something scared them, maybe a car, but they all came and ran to me like I was their momma hen :)

 

 

                 Here's a different face....TigerLily!

Almost all the chicks have nice, sleek feathers to strut around in....and fly...

Some have jumped OUT of the brooder! good thing we were there, we had almost left on a trip and she probably would have gotten lost!

Love the pictures of your babies. I also have some new ones and yes they love to explore their new world, always running from one spot to another, afraid they might miss out on something. Thank you for sharing
AWW! They are so cute!!

Thanks for sharing the pictures of your feathered family. You took great photos!
Aww! It reminds me of my chicks at that age.
Very nice photos and the names you picked are very cute!!  It is very enjoyable to follow others along the same path that we are traveling, too. Our girls are now 4 weeks old and they are 11 of them.  Looking forward to more posts by you.  BB
