Then They Got Big

Sadly, Penny turned into Indy.

Blindie, a sweet bird, a poor trade

Say bye-bye, roosters.

The Fortunate Six

Pitch—a Black Copper Maran hen.

Gimpy, a Barred Rock hen,
has nine toes on one of her feet,
poor girl.

Wait, these are your chickens that just hatched?

Jami said...

Yes, indeed. Three and a half months is a looooong time in the life of a chick.

Wow! I'm glad kids don't grow that fast!

Is this rate of injury/deformity common among chickens? Or did you just get lucky? You've got the blind, the lame...any mute? They are a good looking bunch. Sorry that you have such a rooster surplus.

They are beautiful! I miss having chickens and fresh eggs. I am sure your neighbors will be happy to say goodbye to the roosters.

They are gorgeous! I just thought Blindie was winking at me and Gimpy was bowing to me.
