Spring Chickens::April 29

Last week, our final duck died leaving only the rooster and a bantam hen that only lives part time in the coop ~ she is tiny and finds ways out!

I decided to ask around and find some adult chickens. I was looking for 2 or 3, but I got lucky and got 9 hens.

1 Barred Rock, 1 Golden Wyandotte, 1 Buff Orpington, a few that appear to be Arucanas, and 1 Rhode Island Red.

At first, all of them were fighting the rooster and bantam to find pecking order, but everyone seems more settled today.

Also today: I got an egg!! :)
