I've known I wanted chickens for quite a while. After my husband and I bought our first house we seriously thought about getting a flock, but the property was too small and neighbors too close. Now that we've moved into our second home on 5 acres, the time has finally come! We got our first babies in early April. Our first group of six included a white leghorn, a golden laced wyandotte, two barred rocks, and two cuckoo marans (were told they were easter eggers ). Three days later I came home with 8 more! Two buff orpingtons, two salmon faverolles, two easter eggers, and two welsummers. One welsummer and one easter egger ended up passing away but we were allowed replacements from Rural King. I ended up coming back with an extra easter egger just to be sure . So a total of 15 baby chickies! Now, after a couple months, they've all grown quite a bit! So here are a few updated pictures of the ladies...and fellers (unfortunately).
