I just love the name that Aussie's call chickens - Chooks.
This wee gal is one of seven Black Australorps we ordered. We also ordered on Silver Laced Wyandotte but she did not make it sadly.
Kyle wanted to name one of them Larry Boy - but we informed him that they are hens and not roosters. I guess he just likes those super suction ears!
No names yet.
The day before the chicks arrived our neighbor gave us his Rhode Island Red hens (2 of them) and our rooster Cash is lonely no longer. Can I just tell you what a hilarious sight it is to watch a rooster run? Oh man, it makes me laugh every time. He is a happy camper. The hens seem to be tolerating him. Lindsay is wanting to breed them, so she is hoping one of them will get broody.
There is never a dull moment around here.
I guess that is what happens when you encourage your children to be life long learners....
Isn't she cute?
They are getting their wee feathers on their wings. They are about 4 days old. It will be fun to watch them grow!
