|The ladies (and the rooster who was supposed to be a hen) enjoy a snuggle under a bush for their afternoon nap.|
We have Nudge and Tater Tot,two amerucaunas who should lay blue eggs, Muffin the buff orpington, Rosie the Rhode Island Red, Fudge the miscellaneous rooster who must have been in the wrong bin at the feed store and was supposed to be a silver laced wyandotte, but doesn't look at all like one, Fang the austrolorp, and Tooties, a puffy white silky, who is significantly younger than the rest because they didn't have silkies the first time I went to the feed store but did the second time. I had to do some convincing to buy just her; the store usually sells chicks by the half dozen and I can see why, these girls--and boy--like to stick together and have a distinct "cry" peep when they're left alone.
We're working on turning my old college loft into a coop. We've almost finished it! I'll post photos when it's done.
Until tomorrow, when I am going to post a my May Pretty Palettes project for Halcraft, have a crafty day!
