Our Chickens Are Growing!





I thought that everyone might like to see an update on our growing chicks.  All six of them are still growing and doing great!  They don't really look like chicks anymore, they have lots of feathers and are just about to get through the awkward feather and fluff stage.

Not only are the chicks growing, they are getting quite adventurous too.  They love to "play" in our yard.  When we put them out they follow us around, and never get too far from our feet.  As you can see in the video below when one finds something interesting all of them flock to the same place to check it out.  Such curious little chickens!



On to the pictures... my how they have changed!

This is our Olive Egger named Early or as my husband calls he/she  Earl Lee.  It was the first chicken to hatch and a family favorite.


Meet Copper our Welsummer.

Sunny is a Jubilee Orpington.

This is Tiny he is our Chocolate Orpington.  From the beginning it has been the smallest and has the fewest feathers.  Guess it is a late bloomer.
Sunshine is a Coronation Sussex.  I love how this chicken waddles!
Henny Penny our cute Americana.  I love its fluffy cheeks!!!
We are definitely enjoying raising our chickens!  Leave us a comment and tell us about yours!

Have a great weekend!
