Welcome Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose!!!!

THEY ARE HERE!!! THE CHICKENS ARE HERE!!! And yes, they are named after "The Golden Girls." I didn't get a pic of Dorothy yet (the striped one) because every time I go out with the camera, she hides!

I finished the run, and ran over to Sam and Kate's house. Kate was the chicken wrangler, and I was the container master. She grabbed, I put the lid on. Good system. The best part??? We already got one egg!!!


Rose and Blanche

Rose... Or Blanche... Can't tell the difference between them yet...

  3. Thanks APG! I love the names too... I worked my tail off to get that thing done today!

    Katrina, the hens are just over a year old. Our neighbor wanted to get rid of some of his, so we were definitely in on getting some hens. And yeah, not only is that egg huge, it is really heavy and dense... Can't wait to break it open!

  8. Tami, I am so silly giddy over it, my husband keeps making fun of me!

    Thanks Jodi! I am super proud! Not just of my little hens (well, not so little) but also of my run. I worked so hard on that thing!

    THanks RG! I love their names too... I kept trying to think of old timey sounding names, and then I turned on the tv, and the Golden Girls were on, and it stuck :)
