On Saturday, after the Husband got off work, we went out to a farm about 2 hours away from us. We saw this silo painted to look like corn on the way over. Cute!
We met up with a woman that I'd been emailing back and forth with for a couple weeks and walked away with some new friends.
We finally got chicks after I'd been talking about them for awhile.
I'm hoping these will be my egg producers in the near future.
6 Buff Orpingtons (yellow)
6 Speckled Sussex (striped)
3 Rhode Island Reds (rust)
They are so much fun to watch and the girls just love them. They are busy naming them, though we can't yet tell them apart so we're probably naming the same one over and over!
Here are some of the names we've come up with so far--
Blackhead, Petunia, Kayla, Sophie, Rocky (in case we have a rooster in there), and Henry, plus a few others I can't remember.
We're chicken farmers!
