Ten little hens...

  1. lovechicks1293

    Hello! I'd like you to meet my family's first flock of chickens!
    We got all 10 of them from our local Family Farm and Fleet on March 28, 2017,
    and now at 4 weeks, they are almost to move into their coop! it seems to go by so fast!
    with out further ado....I give you the Ten Little Hens!

    Nibbles is that one chicken who loves to just sit by you and cuddle...

    At one point, something scared them, maybe a car, but they all came and ran to me like I was their momma hen :)

    Most all of them have now grown into their feathers and don't look like fluff balls anymore(!) In only a couple weeks, they'll be in the coop! seems so fast...

    Almost all the chicks have nice, sleek feathers to strut around in....and fly...
    Some have jumped OUT of the brooder! good thing we were there, we had almost left on a trip and she probably would have gotten lost!

    Ohhh Filly.....

    Very nice photos and the names you picked are very cute!! It is very enjoyable to follow others along the same path that we are traveling, too. Our girls are now 4 weeks old and they are 11 of them. Looking forward to more posts by you. BB
