if they could just stay little...



my little chicken friends have grown so fast! it's been quite amazing to watch them transform. the red ones have lost most of their yellow fuzz (a few little tufts remain) and the little black one is now white and black (that's her in the solo pic above). i've been joking that the speckled one (top left photo) is actually a chicken HAWK because she just doesn't look like a chicken! i have to look up what breed she is. the guinea hens want nothing to do with me and will be released soon to run free and roost in the trees like their older cousins, but the chickens are becoming really friendly with me and seem to enjoy the 'chicken massages' i've been giving them in the mornings. i want them to be as cuddly as these ladies were!

The "chicken hawk" may be an Aracauna or Ameracauna. Mine look like that although they have different colors. We have about 20 ladies nowadays and 2 gentlemen, about 6 different breeds. It's a little easier to tell the individual birds apart than if they were all the same.
