The babies are home!!! We had to modify what we got a bit but it's all good. 3 each Buff Orpingtons, Black Astrolorps and Black Copper Marans with 1 Blue Copper Maran. I think we are all good to go. The Marans came from a hatchery. The others came from Cackle Hatchery via the local farm supply. The Marans have been under the MHP since we got them home. The others have come in and out. They are all sleeping under the MHP now. I did have to squash it a bit and put more wood shavings so the were closer to the top. Here's a group photo before I made those changes.
I got my mom and brought her down to check them out. She LOVED it!! So cool to see her so happy over some chickens. As I stated earlier, we always had chickens growing up and they were very special to my mom. She's almost 89 now.
Here's Cheryl helping her with one of the BA's...
She even got in a little snuggle.
Here she is checking out the MHP. She calls it "their momma".
It was so great to see her so happy.
