My Black Copper Maran named Madeline:
Another Americana named Fanny:
Americana named Maggie:
It has been so fun watching these gals develop their own personalities. I say gals, because sadly we can't keep any roosters. The kids have fallen for the chicks and are having fun holding them and caring for them.
Here I am with Hedwig (who's hiding in this pic) the night we got them

And my hubby with his Silkie, Lucy, who is a snuggler and has captured my hubby's heart

Who knew chicken's could be so much fun! We purchased some that will give us all different colors of eggs. The chicks will be ready for their coop when they are about 2 months old, it depends on how feathered they are by that time. I'm working on a sign for the coop. I've decided to name it "Coop-A-Cabana". Pictures to come shortly ;)
