The Chicks Are Here

  1. Kona*Chicken*Ohana
    The Chicks Are Here!!!



    The chicks were born on 9/22/10 and arrived from Ideal Poultry in Cameron, Texas
    to our local Post Office in Kona, Hawaii at 6:30AM on 9/23/10. I was shocked that
    they made it so quickly! I ordered 25 chicks with the plan of keeping 6 or 8 of them.
    We have 11 and they are all named. So I'm afraid that we will be keeping 11 at least
    "until they get bigger and lay eggs, Mama" my daughter says. We will see.
    Their names are:
    Henrietta
    Harriet
    Hannah
    Darby
    Daphne
    Linda
    Lucy
    Coral
    Clementine
    Madelyn
    Myrie

    These are the ones we kept. Two of each kind. Black Australorp, Rhode Island
    Red, Ameraucana, Barred Rock, and Buff Orpington. We ended up with one
    more chick, Henrietta, the cream colored Ameraucana, she's our number 11.
    Remember we were only supposed to have 6-8 hens. Hmmm, something about
    those cute fuzzy chicks is hard to resist!
