We got our chickens
We got a phone call from the man who was selling Brahma chickens. He lives about 45 minutes from us. His birds have won multiple nation awards. So we got in the car and went to buy our birds. We got 3 yellow birds, 2 white birds and one light gray. They are between 8 and 16 weeks old. If fact the two older birds might start laying eggs in a month. They seem to be happy in the beautiful chicken run Jürgen built. I gave them apples and salad along with their feed. And finally we put them in their house. They seem pretty happy. And I am happy to finally have my girls! We at least hope they are all girls. We are not allowed to have roosters. But the farmer will take the roosters back if we got it wrong. So we have an answer to that problem if it happens. They are really cute. I think I’ll spend allot of time with my new baby’s. They are little dinosaur’s. It is fascinating to watch them.
