New Residents

Hubby went to the Fairview bi-annual auction a couple weeks ago. He knew I wanted some more chickens..... and wanted to surprise me ..... he did...... 36 more surprises!!!


Some of the pretty new banties...
"Is it safe to come down??"



"Who's down there??" ( love this little buff brahma hen!)



Just too many roosters ....


There are 3 Araucana hens, all different colors. Isn't she pretty??


"Does this say 'Cafeteria' ???"


all sizes....


all colors....


Now have lots of black hens, and 2 nice big white ones...
None seem to have alot of age on them.


" 'I' am still master here!!" says my little Japanese rooster :)

There is also several Rhode Island Red hens (my least favorite of the chicken world) a couple Barred Rock hens, and a pair of Partridge Cochin bantams. Quite a menagerie, but isn't variety the spice of life??

Your hubby was really thoughtful to have replenished your flock.
Have a great day.

These chicks look like a work of art. Your painting is coming along nicely. Will the chickens be next?
