    I snapped some new pictures of my girls before they become 'big sisters'! Catching most of their silly antics, hope you enjoy! Joon is a 12 week old Barred Rock pullet and Munk is an 11 week old Easter Egger pullet. Had both since the beginning and love them!

    This is their favorite shade tree, the fig tree:

    They are WONDERFUL girls. Totally different personalities, it's really amazing to see the differences and quirks. They will be getting some new sisters on Tuesday, a few Blue Wyandottes and Blue Laced Reds. I hope their bird chasing isn't a sign of anything to come! Their sisters will be similar age/size, and they won't be introduced for a while because they are new birds coming from a new place and I want to make sure all is well.

    Joon is the head hen, but she is confident NOT cocky. Munk usually is the one flying to the top of the garbage bin, eyeing the roof judgementally. Joon doesn't even waste time pushing her authority on Munk, it's just known. Every morning they restablish the pecking order, so hopefully with the new additions it will help spread and thin out this. Joon can get 2 other girls in line along with Munk.

    Great pictures! Your girls sure look healthy and happy. [​IMG] Your pretty EE pullet looks just like an EE hen I had years ago named Brindle. Brings back fond memories. Thank you for sharing!

    They are definately happy! Constant attention, my household consist of 6 people, 3 of which are outside alllll day pretty much. They have a wonderful doggy buddy who never chases or scares them, and plenty of fruit trees. We have cherry, apple, peach, fig, lemon, lime, orange, grapes, corn, rasberries, strawberries, tomatos, beans, peas, squashes, garlic. Man everything just about!! They have lots of lovely shade for the hot summer days, and plenty of protection from rain so they could probably free range in the winter months. I am fortunate to have them, and love the entertainment I get. Both are very friendly to me, but Munk is skittish of new people. Joon loves ANYBODY, especially if you are wearing rings or nail polish haha.

    I just noticed you were in Penn Valley SilverPhoenix! Awesome! That's where I grew up, right next to the firehouse in PV, and learned a lot of what I know about chickens and horses from. I have some dear friends who live in PV, the Gordons. They are great ranchers and taught me so much [​IMG] I lived there right next to the PV rodeo grounds and that firehouse. I loved it and miss the area so much! As soon as I can I will probably be back to my roots lol.
