Growing Like...Chickens!

Remember these little guys?

Just take a look at them now!

Yes, it's been a while since we updated here, but Lord willing, things will calm down enough someday that we can post more regularly. (Yeah, and maybe we'll win the lottery...I can always hope, can't I?)

To recap, we have three different breeds of chickens. First up, is the Dominique. We have five of these and they seem to be the friendliest of the bunch. Or maybe they're just the boldest as they have no problem walking right up to us, probably to see if we've got food in our hands!

Next up is the Delaware, which is much more skittish than the Dominique. Personally, I love the black speckles around the neck. Lovely!

And then there are the Rhode Island Reds. We've got fourteen of these, as they will be our "production" birds.

And just so you can have an idea of how serious KountryDoc takes our chicken business, here's a look at how big the chicken run is that he made for them.

All I can say is that for all the work Doc has put into accomodating these birds, they better lay plenty of eggs 'cause if they don't...well, I do make a pretty tasty roast chicken!
