I am not much of an animal person but I do like our chickens. They are so fun to watch. We have eleven chickens. Five of them are from our first batch of chickens that we got as chicks three years ago. There were twelve of them. Two are from two years ago and the last four are from last year. Our five old chickens are super friendly. They all have names too. So I thought I'd introduce them to you.
Rosie, a Buff Orpington, is one of our sweetest chickens.
Blueberry, an Araucana, is our other very sweet chicken. When she was a baby she had a little blue spot on her head and that's how she got her name.
Peppy la Peep, a Golden Sex Link is Rosie's best friend. Both of them are always getting out of the chicken yard and going on walks together.
Penelope, a Buff Orpington, is our hen that is always going broody.
Missy, a New Hampshire Red, is the chicken that I named. She was an adorable chick, it looked like she had dandelion dust on her head.
Those five birds we spent a lot of time holding, petting, and just spending time with. Our other ones we didn't spend as much time with and they aren't as special, but I'll show you them any way.
This is Fluffy and Nutmeg. They are both Ameraucanas.
Lastly we have Pepper, Speedy Gonzoles, Molly, and Galadriel. Unfortunately they all look pretty much the same and I can't tell them apart. Two are Black Sex Links and the other two are Australorps.
My favorite chick was Lily, an Araucana. She was from the original twelve and she was my chicken. She always got out of the chicken yard too, and whenever she saw me coming she would come running super fast right at me. So I would kneel down and open my arms and it looked like she was running into my arms. : )
Me and Lily
So I hope you enjoyed getting to "meet" our flock.
