So we went to Green Dragon tonight and got 4 chickens (even though we wanted 5 lol)... so we are official !!!
DH worked VERY hard on the coop & run and he just couldn't wait to have chickens who could apprerciate all his hardwork, so my mixed flock of 5 bubble was burst in a 1 minute flurry of shouted numbers !!! We got home after the sun had already set and daylight was fading, we took the girls from the cage and straight into the coop to explore their new home. My 10 yr old named one and the neighbor girl who tagged along named one, 2 remain nameless until tomorrow. My son named one Zero (not a clue why) and the neighbor girl named the other Miss Peckerton IV, this name has merrit though because that girl has many missing feathers from her back. At first we though it was due to fighting in the box while waiting to be auctioned... but then we got all of them out and could see that 2 of the girls had obviously had "relations" with a rooster on the farm before being put on the auction block hehehe.
Now, here's a question, ummm what breed do we have? The auctioneer simply called them Red Hens, but I know better, just not better enough to know exactly what. A little help please?!
Sorry about the picture quality.
