Elsa the Rooster and his Crew

    Elsa is THE MAN! He was named by my niece when he was just a little guy, before we knew his gender. Elsa was born in late April and was given to me, along with his Brother Clinton and his sister Molly, by a neighbor. They are a beautiful lot! My neighbor says they are Silkie/Bantam mixes.

    Clinton (named by my Nephew after his father/my brother who passed away) is a handsome fellow who always looks like he is wearing a beret. He also has a magic feather! He is the less dominate of the two Roosters and I think this is due to Elsa's "Boy Named Sue" complex.

    This is Molly! She is the tiniest of the bunch. She is feisty! She looks like she is wearing a rad Toupee and she doesn't take any crap off the rest of the group. She lays the prettiest blue eggs and from I hear (I am allergic to eggs…ironic I know) they are very tasty!
    She is pictured above with our friend B. B has autism and absolutely ADORES my chickens, especially little Molly.

    Here is the whole crew. I have 7 chickens total and I only highlighted the three siblings. I have three that I got from a feed store in Cave Creek. I purchased them the day before Easter. I had no plan, no coop, no set up, but I could not leave them at that feed store because I had no idea where they would go after the Easter Chick Rush. They were about 3 weeks old and just "plain factory chickens" according to the guy at the store. Well, they are the smartest, sweetest, most beautiful chickens I have seen and they make me very happy! We grew in this chicken world together. Their early days were spent in an extra large dog kennel with a heat lamp and a broom stick perch. They got supervised free range time in the yard and welcomed their 3 step siblings with open wings. Now they are about 7 months old and let me love on them whenever I want!
    The two reds on the left are Pepperann and Bits. The red is the middle is Annie and Juanita is their white sister. I have no idea what their specific breeds are I just know they are super special.

    Thanks for looking at my Chicken World out here in Tempe Az.
