Thank you to PurpleChicken and his charming son for the three new additions to my flock!! The girls are insisting on taking over, so I'll hand over the keyboard to them: Lil'Brownie: "I get to start, new mom says I'm her favorite! OK, so there we were, minding our own business, catching moths, when..." Bernadette: "Who said you could go first? I'm the biggest and most beautiful, so I should go first! So, we were eating bugs, and the big man picks me up and hands me over to new mom..." Barbie: "You are such a show-off...'Goosey' peep-hee-hee-peep! Little boy picked me up and Lil'Brownie and carried us to the car..." Bernadette: "Don't call me 'Goosey'! New mom said my name is Bernadette! Anyway, in the car was a big cage and we got to watch the world go by very fast..." Lil'Brownie: "Goosey, Goosey, you sound like a goose! nonny-nonny-peep-peep-nonny! New mom covered up the cage at night and we got to sleep in the car..." Barbie: "We got something called a 'side-salad' for breakfast with our feed, and boy was it yummy!!" Lil'Brownie: "You guys kept hoggin' all the tomatoes!!" Bernardette: "Oh, like you should complain! You are soooo spoiled, new mom kept holding you and hand-feeding you! And I don't sound like a goose, my voice is changing, new mom said so." Barbie: "New mom kept doing that flashy thingy at us the whole trip, what was up with that?" Bernadette: "Well, when we got here we met all our new sisters. Some of them are still a little snooty, but my beauty and charm will soon win them over..." Barbie: "Spare me! I think everyone is really nice, but I especialy like hanging out inside the fan cooled coop. I met the other Barred Rock, and is she BIG! I cant' wait to be as tall as she is!" Lil'Brownie: "Everybody is big!! I'm the littlest here! That's why I let new mom pick me up and carry me around all over. Besides, I like all the attention..." Bernadette: "Hey, there goes new mom to the run with more treats...come on girls!" Picture taken over my shoulder while cruising south on I81: In foreground: Bernadette (Goosey during trip because of the way she was talking), a Delaware or Columbian Wyandotte. Center: Lil'Brownie, a sweet, little Specked Sussex. Back: Barbie, Barred Rock cutie. Picture of the girls checking out their new coop: A neighbor came to meet them, and here is Lil'Brownie in her favorite place...being held!!
