A Chicken Experience

Hello Everyone,
I have a funny story to post that happened today.
Someone wants to buy our four game hens, so we had to catch them (a hen hatched them herself so they were loose). The only way to catch them was to put them in the pen with our bantam Sea Brights. The only problem with that is we had to catch the Sea Brights and put them in a cage until the others were caught. So we all got gloves on and went in the pen. I walked up to the group and reached down and caught one and all the others came flying at my head and one landed right on my head! It felt very weird having a chicken on my head (something I have never experienced before) and I was afraid it was going to leave something....
Anyway I dropped the chicken I was holding and got the other one off! =)
So that is my story!

We Have More Chicks

Hello Everyone,
We had more chicks hatch out and more are hatching right now. Unfortunately some died in the egg because the chicks that had already hatched flipped them over. I believe we have over a hundred chicks - or will when they are done hatching. We are keeping some and selling the rest.
To answer Macy's question we have Black Giant, Cuckoo Maran, Sumatra; Buff, Red, and Black Polish; Modern Swamp Chicken (they have long legs!), B.B Red, Millifluer, Blue Splash, Red Pyle, and Blue Millifluer.

These are the funniest looking ones:

This is a Black Polish (the Polish chickens look like they have hair! It looks funnier when they are older)


This is a Buff Polish (we also have a Red Polish but I don't think we have a picture)
I know, this has nothing to do with Chicks, but I wanted to post it. =)

Goat in a tree..funny! (mom found this picture on Google)

A Longer Post (finally!)

Hello Everyone!
Here are some pictures! Enjoy.


Sydney took this a few weeks ago....We were either getting a storm or just had one..I can't remember.


I was holding the branch down for the goats...I had no idea someone took a picture!


The other day one of our chickens hatched out some chicks so we went out to catch them (if we don't they die) and Susie picked up our box and started carrying it around! lol


Gracie playing in the creek.


Emily with the chicks!

She named this one "Wilma". It fell asleep every time she picked it up.

Cute!


They have now been moved off our porch and out in the yard. They were getting too big for the brooders and getting out. We have more chicks hatching in a week or two.

This is a cool video of 'Star of the County Down'.


That's all for now!
