Dash has been the very best brother….ever. Every time he hears a loud screech, he comes a runnin’.
The six little girls moved into a new home today. They are growing so fast!
The one who has Dash running to the rescue, is the Golden Sex Link, in the middle, Pocahontas. She tried to hit the trails, (jumping completely out of the wash tub and on to the carpet) at about 10days old! I believe she is a bit flighty.
The one on the right is Mae West. The Barred Rock, in the middle; is Bell Starr (she has a star on top of her head). The other Barred Rock is Calamity Jane, and the littlest one, the Buff Orrpington, who just turned one (week) is Annie Oakley. The missing one….on the bottom of the pile is Ms. Kitty. She is pretty small, as well.
I think Mae West has the most beautiful eyes and coat. Can’t you just picture one of Mae’s shawls, it would look just like these feathers…
The girls are growing so fast, their coats change everyday and I can even see some combs starting. This group seems to be developing much faster than my last group. I hope they don’t get too big too soon, as it is still very cold out and the coop would be very difficult to keep super warm for them.
