We have chickens

We have chickens. At least, I think they're chickens. Maybe they're roosters. Time will tell!

Lucy and Alice came to live with us last Sunday.
My SIL, Melissa, got the chickens for her kiddos for Easter but as they began to grow she decided she needed to find a new home for them.

We borrowed a little cage for the chickens from our neighbors, The Johnsons. Virgil set it up in the backyard.And Stephen gathered some straw for bedding.
Melissa thought they were Cornish Game Hens.

Mr. Johnson is not sure he agrees.... The doggies? They think they might be FOOD!!

Good luck on your new friends, I have always wanted to raise chickens...for the eggs I do not think I could ring one's neck! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Jenny said...

Amy, Amy! I'm so excited for you! You are turning into a true farm girl!

Carol said...

I wonder...will they produce blue & green eggs?

Mumsy said...

What are they blue and green? I want to see them when the dye ran off.

Aaaaaawwww! I had to look twice when I saw their colors. Good luck! I hope at least one is a female so you can get eggs. :o)

Hope you're having a good weekend. Brrrr, it's cold again here!

Steph said...'s already been stated that they are blue and green.... :) I thought they only did that in the part of the world where I live. Hope y'all have fun with them.

Jo said...
