Our first chickens are here!
« on: March 26, 2011, 17:35 »
We went and picked out our new chickens from Ark this morning  :) I was surprised at how many different colours and variations there were - it was hard to choose! But we got four lovely girls and they have ventured out a little this afternoon so I got a few pictures :D

. . . Argh!! photobucket won't play. . will try and find some way to get photos up  ::)

I use photobucket as it allows you to copy the image code for you to paste so saves the messing about. Nice chucks by the way.

Its fun getting to know their individual personalities   :happy: Moonshine is definitely the brave one at the moment! They all seem to be relaxing a lot more now and tonight they went back in their coop as dusk approached without being told so they are clearly smart too  ;)

It looks like your red hen is a Columbian Black Tail, also known as a Calder Ranger.  We have one and her name is Tilly.  She has personality + and a real joy!  Your hens are beautiful and I love their American names!  I hope Twinky lasts as long as the items she's named after's shelf life!   ;)
When I die I will slide in sideways, a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming, "Whooo hooo!  What a ride!" as life is to be enjoyed to the fullest!
