The Flock

I'd like to introduce our flock. We have 2 golden comets, 2 barred plymouth rocks, and 2 araucanas. Aren't they cute?

The second one from the left is my favorite and the only one I've named. I call her Maybelline because of her sexy outlined eyes. Oh God, did I really just call a chicken sexy?
Here's a barred plymouth rock and an araucana. They already look way different than this. And I thought my kids grew fast!

And here's part of my own flock adoring the chicks.

So far the chickens have been such a great thing for especially Evie. She is learning how to be gentle with animals and responsibility in keeping them clean and fed. My little animal lover is having the time of her life and I'm learning through her that having them around can be kind of enjoyable. Although I think most of my enjoyment will come in the form of delicious fresh eggs all year round. Mmmm, can't wait!


  1. Careful, next you'll be designing a chicken "panty" and letting them roam around your mansion and listen to opera.

    just sayin'
