    I picked up three pullets from BYC friend zoo357 this morning! They were hatched in April-May.

    This is Lace, the light Brahma:

    Goldie (named by my 4 yo niece), the Buff Orpington:

    and not named yet, the Rhode Island Red:

    They are settling in well so far. No one has ventured into the coop.

    Yay! I'm so excited!

    * The kennel isn't entirely done yet. I will be adding wire around the bottom and anchoring the kennel. I'm a stay-at-home-mom and will be checking on them regularily.

    I'm sure they'll wander into the coop at some point but they have lots of shade and they do like the outdoors!!
    Thanks for taking them. I'm looking forward to hearing more about them [​IMG]
