I have several friends who have chickens and I always thought it would be interesting to try it out...so we did!
Yesterday we brought home three lil' ones...."Dela" (a Delaware breed), "Buffy" (Buff Orphington, and "Big Girl" (Americana). Why "Big Girl?" Well, we were struggling coming up with a name and temporarily started to refer to her as "Big Girl" since she is several weeks older (and bigger of course) than the other chicks.
|From left to right...Big Girl, Buffy (the slightly darker chicken), and Dela.|
|This is Max's "happy face!"|
|I walked into the kitchen and was quite surprised to find Big Girl perching on the tub....|
she quickly went back to the others when I asked. :)
