Wild Thyme Farm's Flock

    We are having a busy spring! We've just added 2 dozen chicks to our existing 13 member flock. Our flock free ranges during the day and has a coop in our outbuilding for night and foul weather. Our flock includes a variety of easter eggers, barred rock, leghorns, australorps, wyandottes, Isa browns, buff orpingtons, brahmas and 1 Red Dorking roo named Dexter. We've had turkeys in the past and they were very fun.

    Your Sophie looks strikingly like my EE "Chipmunk". They must be clones, because Chipmunk has the sweetest personality too! The other day she sat in my lap and snuggled me for nearly twenty minutes before I finally had to remove her to take care of other things.
