The Girls are Growing Up!!

Here is a picture or two of my ladies. They certainly have grown in only 4 weeks. We now have 12. Their home has changed to from the tub to a large dog kennel-double sided. Their appetite has increased as well as their size. I am waiting for my husband to fix the coop before I take them outside and I am really not sure they are ready; some look like they have all their feathers and some of the bantams are just getting their feathers. Some breeds seem to have a language or sound all their own. I am glad I don't need a permit for this-we live in an agricultural zone. However, a friend of mine in CT would have to pay $360. to have chickens-that is crazy. Well, have a good weekend everyone. Enjoy the sunshine.

Meet The Girls or Chickens

So, what are chickens doing on a scrapbook blog? Well, I decided I wanted to raise some chickens and get some good eggs this summer. Yesterday, my husband and I went to Tractor Supply and purchased 6 baby chicks. My son's girlfriend also has some chickens, so I plan on asking her for 3-4 because they lay blue eggs. If I could locate some Silkies, I plan on buying them too. I really want an Eclectus male baby parrot but I am afraid it will scream and all that stuff that some parrots do. We do have Oliver, my Senegal and of course he has his moments but it is tolerable.
By the way, we use to have chickens years ago so we are not totally ignorant of chickens. Anyway, here are some pics of my baby chicks. These particular chicks are California Whites-good egg layers and hardy.
