Today I wanted to do that chicken post I promised everyone! Meet the girls! 🙂 Oh, you will note that only five of them are in this picture above. We have six total. 🙂 Their Rode Island Reds, and their almost eight months old. We’re getting about five eggs a day, and we’re filling our egg cartons up fast!
We’ve at last named them: Mine is Mrs Shin (from The Music Man), Mom’s is Aunt Bee (from the Andy Griffith Show), Nathan’s is Princess Leia (ha, ha, yes from Star Wars!!!!), Dad named his Miss Lemon (From the Hercule Poirot Series) and Kayla named the other two Lucy and Ethel. LOL
Aunt Bee is the only chicken with white feathers in her tail. Ethel is at the bottom of the ‘pecking order’, she gets picked on. Mrs Shin is the head chicken, she struts around and is very bossy. Miss Lemon, Lucy and Princess Leia are kinda middle dogs–er, chickens. 😛
