Our herd has grown by 50 chicks! They came in the mail yesterday morning. They are cute as can be. They are bantams so they won't get very big. There are Silkies, Dominiques and Ameracaunas. The Silkies are my favorites as they have feathers like fur and are sweet. The Ameracaunas lay blue and green eggs and are known as the Easter Egg chicken!
This is our third foray into the world of chickens. We have had a problem the previous two times with raccoons. This time Lester is going to hot wire and fence the perimeter of the coop so it will be like San Quentin prison when he is done with it!
I hope you enjoy the video. Les took it last night. It is a long video but there are some really cute parts in it, especially when they are falling asleep on their feet. Turn up the volume and let me know if the little peeps get your hounds attention?
And no, I doubt Sweetheart would be chicken safe so I am not evening going to 'chicken' test her. :)
