New Chicks!

Meet the newest members of our family!  They are adorable and Clara thinks that they are just her new best friends.   Nancy screams happily every time she sees them and tries to poke them.  Clara picked out the names Sugar for the yellow one and Clucky for the brown one.  The yellow chick is a Buff Orpington (the same kind as our older chicken, Curry).  The brown chick is an Americauna and will lay blue or green eggs.  So, we’ll have four chickens for the time being and possibly go down to two later in the year after the older girls stop laying for the winter.  I’ll make sure to update as I introduce the new chicks to the older chicks as that should be an interesting process!

    Andy can’t wait to help “dispatch” the older chickens when the time comes 😉

    Don’t pluck. Too messy and smelly when you burn off pen feathers. Skin them like you would other animals.

    OK, this is getting out of control—I keep looking at your blog and there’s nothing new!!! Don’t tell me you’re too busy. I know BUSY, every day, walk the beach, make picnic lunch, go back to beach, eat, drink, watch whales, people and sky. Go home, shower and go back to beach for sunset THEN bbq dinner and start over for the next day. Oh yeah I know busy.
