We have chickens!!!!

Did I say I was excited???? We have chickens.......ranging in age from 5 weeks to 5 months.  They are so cool.  We picked them up in Ballground, GA, today.....all from the same breeder, Danielle.  The chicken cottage is mostly finished.......need to get the windows installed and some more vents.  Hopefully that will happen tomorrow.  Thanks, Chris.



I am already thinking of ways to "cute it up".  You know me........


 First out of the crate was this pretty Light Sussex pullet.

Then came the Coronation Sussex pullet, now named Esther by Christi.

Captain Cluck (named by Robert), the Lemon Cuckoo Orpington roo.

The Easter Egger pullet........look at those colors!

In the foreground, the Lemon Cuckoo pullet.

The little Cochin baby.....the first baby out of the crate.


Two Gold Laced Wyandottes, a Barred Rock and the little Cochin chowing down.

Sara Ashley with her little Barred Rock which she 
dubbed Bella.

I can hardly stay out of the chicken coop.  

GRATITUDES:
The innocence of these little chicken creatures.
The wonder and excitement of a child........regardless of the child's age.......holding a chicken for the first time.
Life.

More later,
Jennie
