    Ok, here are some of the featherheads that came to us from the1much and Skand. They are settling in quite nicely! I can't find the note with the names on them,,, I think it is in my jacket pocket of my school jacket that I wore that day, and it is in my classroom!

    LOL yeah I think so! I've got some other pics of some of the bigger babies in the brooder house we brought back, I haven't posted them yet. Three of my little girls, Bantams, moved in with them to take care of them, it's cute!
    This is the older ones in the broody house, they were checking it out for the first time.

    Forgot to mention the bigger one in the foreground is Charlotte, Steven's little girl. She's the broodiest hen on the face of the Earth!!

    The trip up was only 4 hours, about 300 miles, but the trip back with the load and really bad weather took about 6.5 hours!
