Love the pictures. My husband won't get on the board with raising chickens. We have a bear problem so keeping them safe would be a problem. I suggested our garage Rolling my eyes. , really does a car need a house? Anyway my family raised chickens, ducks and peacocks when I was young and I have always wanted to do it again. Your pictures will have to be my contact with chickens. Love all your information.

Too many cats!!
finally got some pictures taken today... so tired... but I am being faithful of handling them every single day. I can't believe how big the araucanas are getting!! I'm worried that one may be a roo... didn't get pictures of everyone, just a few here & there.

and everyone in a corner under the lamp

they're eating (or throwing) about 2-3 cups of food a day. I put a mat under their food dispenser so that hopefully they don't throw as much.. Birds are just messy creatures, I don't care what KIND of bird. They're ALL messy.
Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.

Marietta,
I grew up with chickens when I was little, even tho we lived in town and grandparents and great aunts had chickens. My great aunt had banties that ran thru the yard with baby chicks. SO adorable. I think we will always keep those memories and yearn to have chickens again, lol! At least my daughter has chickens.

Toni,
They are really changing, but still cute!

Awww, look at those little wings with real feathers! Nice coop you bought. I hope it assembles easily.

Big big big. They're getting so big!!

The brown Araucana... she's definitely the head hen (if she's a pullet.. she *should* be). She's the biggest and the most developed. She struts around, standing very tall and on point. She's also very beautiful.. a rich warm brown color.
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/660b72 Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/9c825b

The other Araucana isn't as big or as bossy... but I think she's gonna be a pretty bird too.
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/7e9efa

The Cuckoo Marrans are starting to really get in some feathers. They prefer to hang out with the littler chicks.
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/d0fe5e Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/61c369

And one of the Cuckoos with the Blue Wynadottes.
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/56c596

Decided to let Nike sniff one of the Blue Wynadotttes.
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/6c0b9e

The Silver Laced Wynadottes are still really super floofy instead of feathers.. but soon they'll be beautiful!
Thumb of 2017-03-09/Skiekitty/f5b4bd

But I think the friendliest are the White Orpingtons.

So cute. I did find out some of our new chicks are Cuckoo Marrans. There are some yellow ones too, but didn't know what kind they are. I haven't seen Matt to ask him.

My heat lamp somehow got knocked off the cage, so it shattered into a gazillion pieces. So I had to go to the store to buy more. Went to Murdoch's.. and remembered that Thursdays are the days that they get their chicks. oh dear. Here I am, by myself, in a store.. with adorable little chicks............

yup. Some more came home. This is all I can care for for a while until some get sold (probably next month I'll take some to some of the swaps that will start going on).

I also picked up some Black Jersey Giants. I've had these guys before. They get HUGE!

Too many cats!!
In 2014, that's when I was experimenting with having a bunny hutch inside so the "dinosaurs" could grow inside because my weather here is too unpredictable. The cats appreciated that.
