After wanting chickens for many years, our town now allows up to 4 hens. So, in early September my two approximately 6 week old slw arrived. I was so excited. Then, I saw my little birds. They looked like some sort of prehistoric little vultures. My chicken expert coworker assured me my little vultures would grow into gorgeous birds but I kept thinking, why are my chickens so ugly? Luckily, my coworker was correct & my little vultures are growing into lovely birds. The girls hear, "They look like little chickens" so often that they come running when I say it lol. In the picture, Mildred was more interested in her food than the camera, but Louise was happy to pose.
