New Ladies

100_6765

Meet one of our new ladies. We have been blessed to receive 5 new hens and 1 rooster for free. A family that lives across the Parkway from us purchased thesechickens on Easter weekend. That makes them about 1 month younger than ours. They decided chickens were not for them. They gave them to us with the coup. We brought them to their new home today. Julie will have to work on petting them up but I don’t think it will take her long. We are going to increase the size of our fenced in area and then put them all together. We think our older ladies like having a rooster around. We received 6 eggs today and one of them was a double yoke. We do not really want the rooster though. We are thinking of giving him away.

It is HOT here. Temperature is 95 degrees. I’m not sure what the heat index is but it is definitely hot. Enjoy your day, stay cool and God bless.

  1. What a blessing for you all. We do like the double yolk eggs. Our newest ones haven’t started to lay yet, maybe this coming month.

    Have a great weekend and I hope that you cool down.

  2. That is cool that you got 5 more hens plus a rooster. Our barred rock rooster is kind of sweet, of course he hasn’t started to crow yet 🙂

    I gave away our last calico kitten this morning. I feel kind of sad because I gave away Grace’s kitten 🙁 We only have two black and one black and white kitten left.

    It is cloudy here now and it is thundering. I think we might get a rain shower.

  3. How great to get new chickens…and for free at that! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂
    Many Blessings,
