My friend Crystal at work, yes the one who's Chihuahua we took care of, her mom raises goats and chickens. No we didn't get any goats... yet. But we did get five sweet new "teenage" chicks. They are Golden Laced Wyandotte's, and cute as can be. The markings on their feathers when they grow up will be just beautiful. For now they just have a full body and scrawny little heads.
The Jevnes came and checked out our new little chicks...
Our one chicken, Yolk-O, was not to sure about them, since she had the run of the coup for the past couple of months. She pecked one of the chicks on the head to remind the of who was the top chick around these parts. Naughty chicken... she sure is pretty though!!
So here are some more pics of them running around, they are the fastest chickens I've seen. They love to be held, and they coo like doves in stead of clucking. Sweet!
This is my favorite pic... a face only a mother could love.
