I just wanted to show some love for the ladies I got about 5 months ago. It's been such an amazing experience to start from day old chicks. I love watching them grow and cannot wait to spend many years with my sisterhood. So without further introduction here are some pics throughout the last 5 months.
Driving to the Post Office was very scary. When I got the call my girls had arrived I remember jumping in the car at 6 a.m. to drive the long drive to go get them. I had been setting up my little pen for weeks, and was very ready to meet them. They were all very energetic when I got them, and loved the little pen.
I had purchased 4 Barred Rocks, 1 Clean Faced Easter Egger, 4 Buff Laced Polish, 4 Ameraucanas, 3 Buff Orphingtons
Skip forward a little more than a month, I had lost one Buff Laced Polish to heat stroke (that was very depressing), but everyone else was thriving.
At 3 months we finally started to turn out to the large run when the weather was nice.
Also, we started working through our baby feathers to adult feathers.
Now at around 5 months we are eating everything we can get a hold of, perching, and exploring new places (the backyard). Also, some of the ladies have great hair now.
Here's to the next big step, laying!
Thanks for reading!
