    Here are updates on the RIR hen that I had found a month ago. She now has two young flock members and they are very happy chickens. We hope to get eggs come springtime.

    In this pic the two young birds look out the window in the coop on a cold day

    Here they are eating from my hand. Miss Red is in the middle. Penny on the left and Henny on the right

    Its moderately cold here in Pennsylvania. 20's - 40's is the temp range right now. We did get some snow this weekend

    It is great to see the old hen enjoying some company finally. She is the alpha, so far...

    From the looks of her, you just might get some eggs sooner than spring. [​IMG]

    Love that first pic! The girls look so cozy and content to just stay inside for the day. It's been terribly cold here too. -14F with the windchill tonight and tomorrow's high temp isn't expected to get much above 15 or so. Brrrrrrr!! All of our girls haven't got the slightest interest in going outside right now. I couldn't even get them to come outside for a bit of lettuce. Spoiled rotten girls made me bring it inside where they were all basking under the heat lamp! [​IMG]

    lol you have a heat lamp for yours? They are some lucky chickens!

    Here is a video of my three girls eating out of my hand. Miss red comes in about halfway through the video, she is the bigger hen on the left. The video has sound and you can hear them gobbling up the food and making their little chicken noises...

    Henny's first egg! [​IMG]

    She scratched out all the straw in the nest box and layed it on the bare wood, so the egg has a dent and small crack in it. We did not eat it just incase.
