hi lovelies! today, i am honored to introduce to do you the newest members of our family!
my little box of 7 healthy peeping chicks (all girls) arrived at the post office yesterday from my pet chicken!
“well hello, sista!”
this is paulie the buff laced polish – her fluffy head will turn into a big tuft of feathers one day, you can what she’ll look like here!
this is pearl the plymouth rock- she’ll be especially friendly.
say hello to clover the blue cochin! do you see her feathered feet? she’ll have beautiful feathered legs when she grows up.
this is joby the jersey giant- jersey giants are good natured and supersized!
meet olina the orpington! i already have one orpington (odessa) and she’s the smartest chicken i’ve ever met (i promise!) so i couldn’t say no to getting another one.
elloise the easter egger will one day give me beautiful blue eggs.
this here is daisy the dominique, her breed is endangered so i’m doing what i can to keep their name alive!
these next few shots are of elloise and paulie, they are so cute together!
her beautiful eyes take my breath away. i’m such a proud momma! they are all in my kitchen for the next week or so, then i’ll move them to the laundry room before they make their way to the outside coop where they’ll meet my other 7 hens!
