We’ve been talking about getting chickens for a few years and finally did it. We’ve had them for two weeks now and they have already grown like crazy. They are in a large wooden crate in our garage staying warm.DSCN1770 DSCN1774

We got 6 pullets (young hens) of good egg-laying breeds (2 each of Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, and Isa Brown).DSCN1795 DSCN1798

We’re “babysitting” two additional Rhode Island Reds for our neighbor until they are ready to go out to the real world.DSCN1808


They look noticeably¬†larger to me¬†now. I love the feather markings of the Rhode Island Reds. Hopefully they will keep them, though most pictures I’ve looked up of the grown hens are more solid color. We shall see…
