Honestly, I never thought I would be so darn excited about chickens. We were so excited to finally be able to go pick them up! And it's no wonder - they are hilarious! They warmed up to their new digs quite quickly. They aren't as afraid of us as I thought they would be either. Petey, is quite fascinated and can just sit by the pen for hours and watch them. The cats could care less about them really, which is good. However, once we start letting them roam around during the day when they get bigger, that will probably change. We picked up 8 hens. Four of them are White Laced Wing Wyandotts and 4 of them are Black Sex-Links (they are a cross between a Rhode Island Red and a Barred Rock). The Sex-links are the black and brown ones.
Here's what they looked like when we picked them up - don't they look like Happy Meals??
Here's a few of them making their escape to the Chicken Ritz in Blue Ridge, GA.
Here's the lot of them in the chicken coop before we went out and got their straw.
They have been eating and drinking great and they have just been so much fun! Here's a few shots from day 2.
