Our new chickens by Erin K Creatoins, on Flickr[/img] We just got our first chickens. I've wanted them my whole life. I love them. I don't have much more to say about them yet. They seem sweet. They ate some grubs we didn't know we had, so my husband thinks they are awesome. They are gentle with my kids so far. Names: The all black one is Sweetums (my 5 year old was in charge of that name) The brown one is Fancy Nancy (she's fancy, with ear tufts) The black and white is a Rock Barred (sorry! I meant Barred Rock) and I don't know what to name her yet, but I think they are the most beautiful chickens of all when they grow up so it has to be a really great name. We are all super excited around here.
