    My chickens don't play like the turkeys do - and often look at the turkeys like they have taken leave of their senses. I can just picture the expressions on your chickens faces :gig

    They're 6 months old today actually. I had top dig out my hatch records and look.




    Same here! My turkeys will come out of their coop, stretch their wings and start flapping and flying in circles and jumping around each other. The chickens just get out of the way lol.

    I'm completely captivated by these two hens. Spending way too much time with them! But they are so much fun. They've only been here since July. I think they are settling in and their personalities are really coming through. My chickens don't seem to care but I think my dogs are getting jealous!

    Blue slate and rusty slate. The girls all seem to be about the same size as them (they're Bourbon reds, and mixes) but I didn't weigh them some true not destined to be eaten. They all free range most days and have been for several months.

    I love that picture! These birds are addictive lol. They have such cool personalities, and are much more individual than I expected.


    My DH was commenting on this last night - he had to talk me into getting chickens and turkeys in the spring. Now he laughs because I'm always reading up on what they need, we're sitting out in the yard with them, building new things for them, egg hunting 3x per day to see if anyone else has started laying....

    Holm! Now that's what I call a mixed flock! :D
    Is that a Sweetgrass hen I'm seeing in the back of the first picture?
