the chickens have come out to play

saturday 018

Last weekend I finally got to meet the newest additions to my parents petting zoo, the chickens! They have their own custom built chicken house, complete with egg gathering doors and a lovely backyard to run around in.

saturday 019   They are still a bit young and slightly skittish.  All in all they seem to be very happy in their new house and I have been told that they might be getting some new friends in September.           saturday 026 They have several different kinds of chickens which all lay different kinds of eggs. They have a few Americauna chickens which lay pale blue and green eggs (think Easter) and some Bantam chickens which will have a smaller egg. saturday 032These guys were inseparable all day long. Hopefully we will have some fresh eggs to cook with soon!
