Well, I’m in the chicken business now.  Hopefully!  I met this great lady named Anne when she came in to the Wild Birds store last week.  She was buying mealworms to feed to chicks, and I told her I wanted to get some.  She offered to give me some of the shipment she was getting in!  So today I went and picked up seven from her at her cute farm.

When I pulled in the first thing I saw was this peacock strutting for the chickens!  I was amazed at the sound he was making, shaking his feathers.

I loved this hen and chicks all cuddled up.  Do you see the one peeking out from under her wing?

Some kind of rare chickens I forget the name of.

Guinea hens were running around the yard.

They are Barred Rock (1), Buff Orpington (2), Ameraucana (1), and Austrolop (3.) I think…ha!  I’m a little mixed up but I think I remember which are which!  They’re cute. I hope I don’t kill them!

  1. I’ve made the comment, in the past, that I’d like to have some too,…..probably just White Rocks, but I know when they got old enough to let run, the coyotes would take care of them in double time.  Those ar so cute.
