Chicken Pictures for WSB

In, “Chicks, Fun and Trouble,” I told about the new chicks we received by mail.  WSB asked for more pictures when they were grown.

I took these pictures yesterday.  The chickens are enjoying getting out of the barn, scratching, grazing, picking up rocks for their crop.  It’s been a long winter, stuck in the barn.

Today we have a snowstorm and school is canceled.  Seems like Mother Nature always teases us.  What’s the saying?  “Robins always get three snows on their backs?”

Below are three of the chicks, grown.  An Araucana, White Rock, and Barred Rock.  They are laying beautiful, little, pullet eggs.

Also, I want to say thank you to all the women in my life.  Today is the 100th International Women’s Day. It was started in 1911 to honor the Suffragettes, who fought for womens’ right to vote.

    I love the nimble jump from the hens in your barn to the women in your life! We had to completely de-hen a couple months ago, as the fox had learned how to circumvent the electric fence. I miss them (the hens, that is), and their delicious eggs.

    You’re welcome, WSB.
    Jane, sorry about the fox. Has anyone seen the movie, “Fantastic Mr. Fox?” Farmers don’t find the title character quite as sympathetic.

  4. well, we’ll take those nice wishes…..thank you.
    I have to say I don’t miss the snow….but I do envy you the constant fresh air, great eggs, and chickens running around.
    Heaven on earth~
    Hugs.
