All About Our Chickens

We have 13 chickens – 1 Delaware – we call her Della, 3 White Leghorns (Holly 1, 2, and 3 – we got them from our dear friend Holly), a Welsummer name Brownie, a Blue Andalusian named Penelope, 6 Ameraucanas – Goldie, Gertrude, Greta, Maureen (I’ll have to check with hubby about the other two…he named them!), and a Barred Rock named Abby!

We started with a small, and very cute, chicken coop – the specs said it would house 8 chickens, but I thought the original 6 were a little crowded, so we bought a dog pen and shade cover for the tops, so they would have a little more room to roam!  I kind of grew from there!!  We are getting ready to buy a 3rd coop soon!

Our little furbaby, Mike, is still very intrigued with the hens ! (I think hubby is too – he is always wanting to hold them !)16640980_297697487313436_5059089072992804361_n16681703_297697523980099_5423085501357411336_n16830750_297697493980102_3250968651681230484_n
