Here are the lovely gifts that I receive every morning, sometimes one, but most days I get two!
They have been here for a week now and I am still tweaking their yard, we are also going to have to make a few adjustments to the coop before winter really gets here. They both got out the second day they were here, I thought they flew over the fencing, but I think they slipped out a small opening in the fencing. That was a little scary 'cause Hunter, our German Shepherd, was trying to get them, luckily they were in the bushes on the side of the hill and he couldn't get to them. One got out yesterday and I think I have fixed the problem.
If Hunter was not unleashed we could let them free range, but he roams the yard and would surely get them. I never thought that I would get chickens, I had a traumatic experience when I was very young and have always been afraid of them ( no laughing), but they have "pecked" me yet! I hope that I can make everything warm and cozy for them during our cold winter, I have been doing some reading and I am up for the challenge, I will also be bugging Peggy with questions. I am hoping that they will continue to lay eggs all winter! I have not named them yet, they really belong to my son, but I am sure that he wouldn't mind if I named them. So there you have it the "ladies" are chickens!
