The Girls

Our hens arrived yesterday. They were very quiet in the car not making a sound as we transported them to their new home.

They were a little shy at first.But after a little while curiosity got the better of them. They explored every nook, scratching and pecking their way around.
The Rooster has named his hens Pepper and Pickle. Pepper is the smaller chook and Pepper is the taller more cautious hen.

He loves his new friends. His favourite part of today was to feed them our food scraps. He thinks that it is pretty neat to have chickens to look after. I can't wait to see his face when he collects his first egg. He tells me he might even just try one.

  1. How exciting! The girls are beautiful. I would LOVE chickens. Have to wait 'til we move, though we have two ducks. So sweet, love little Rooster with the chicks. And that henhouse is the bomb! WOW!
