    I added two new girls to my flock. This is Thelma & Louise and they just arrived today. They are very sweet girls and 3 & 4 months old. I think they are huge but then these are my first Orpington's. They were of course a little scared being in new surroundings but then started to follow me everywhere. I think I am going to enjoy them alot!

    Thanks! I REALLY like them!!! They are such sweethearts and my little nine week old bullies are picking on them! They are so sweet, they don't do anything back and they are twice their size!!
    They are Blue & Splash Orps.

    I think they are starting to do better! One of my 9 week old Andalusian's has been hanging close to them as if she is telling the others to leave them alone. They were out and about more today so I think it will get better. They also roosted with the others tonight which is a first. I will also have to try and get better pictures of them! I have the hardest time getting a good picture of my chickens.
