    I got six new chickens!! They are a present from my dad [​IMG]
    He went and was supposed to get six, well when we put them in the pen we saw there was only five! [​IMG] So today he went back and got the last one that had escaped. I got her and she joined in the pen like nothing ever happened. It oddly feels complete and "right" with her back. [​IMG] I'm just glad the man found her! [​IMG]

    (I'm not sure if the white ones are leghorns or white rocks... I was told they're are white rocks but they have white earlobes??)

    So first is Wily, the boss with all the tail feathers and the floppy comb:

    Second is Ginny a RSL of some type, she's the most outgoing by far:

    Thirdly, Gizelle is also an RSL and she is the one who just came today. She's so sweet already:

    Fourth, Penelope is the other floppy-comb one:

    Fifth is Abigail, who has the biggest comb that is not floppy [​IMG]

    Then last but not least is Phoebe, who has the smaller comb that is non-floppy [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    They're living in a pen in my garage for a month until they're done being quarantined. SO glad I got them!
