SMCAchick's New FlockWeek 7
[FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]October 28, 2009. Chickens have a new house! They are getting so big, so fast. The Wyandotte (Bad Queen AKA Maleficent) is the most curious. She walked up to the camera and examined it. She also hops up on the ladder to the hen house and looks in the window to our house. My 3 year-old daughter named two of the chickens after Sleeping Beauty. The Rhode Island Red is Sleeping Beauty. The Barred Rock is Barred Rock Obama and the Americauna is Dolly Parton.[/FONT]Week 3[FONT=book antiqua,palatino]Week 2[/FONT]
Look at their new feathers! They're in that awkward stage and aren't too pretty, but I love seeing them grow. I'm off to get grit so they can check out the backyard soon. [FONT=book antiqua,palatino]Week 1[/FONT]
We bought our little flock on 9/10/09 and they are living in the garage in a box. My husband has drawn up plans for a coop and he'll begin building soon. The girls (95% sure) are sweet little fluff balls and I can't wait for the eggs! I have a Rhode Island Red, a Plymouth Barred Rock, a Silver-Laced Wyandotte, and an Ameraucana. They are the latest addition to our urban homestead. The snails in the garden don't stand a chance!
