2 Hip Chicks
I always dreamed of living on a farm, but it's not so bad being a City Chick anymore..........now that I have fresh eggs everyday!
We were able to squeeze these very comfotable living quarters in the corner of the yard, that once was an eye sore, but is now a cozy looking coop. All the wood was salvaged, so it was very inexpensive to build.
Meet Buella, and Henrietta. Each lays a different color egg everyday; brown and pink.
Bueller is a Barred Rock, very friendly and trusting.
Henrietta is an Ameraucanas. She is the mother hen. Always the first to roost at night. Her eggs are an unusual pale pink color.
WARNING - PROTECT YOUR TOMATOES
May 28, 2006 - so the chickens like tomato plants, go figure. Seems like they are recovering, already new growth down below, where the damage was done just one week ago.
