Introducing... Lily, Lola, Ede, Charlotte, Aviva and Betty Bird....
I have been cataloguing their growth with photos and wanted to share them. The girls wont be laying until late June early July but they are so fun already and they love their new home outside which I lovingly refer to as the 'taj-ma-coop'. Ryan (aka captain thorough) doesn't do anything halfway, not even coop building.
|That's Lola in brown
|That's Ede, also brown, there are also 3 black and brown and one white and black.
|Under construction - the coop will be ready for our growing teenagers.
|The most dangerous creature in the yard... chickens beware.
|Teenager birds start to look cute again, I didn't think they were photo op ready when they had no feathers.
|From back to front: Charlotte, Ede adn Lily
|Charlotte is gaining confidence and they have such a blast outside. At this point they were out in the day but slept inside as it was still quite cold.
|Birds of a feather really do flock together!
|Ede, Lola and Lily find yet another delicious patch of grass!
|I LOVE their fluff butts...
|Betty Bird is so big now, but this picture shows how her colours were coming in
|Miley couldn't care less about the chickens, though she likes to lay near them, perhaps she is guarding them?
|Flighty as they are, the birds also seem to like Miley. They don't care unless she tries to play.
|Digging themselves cozy beds in the warm dirt, delightful.
|The coop with walls
|Inside their cozy home, we used dishwasher racks as removable flooring, sooo easy to wash!
|Here is a view of their water, food and ramp, we layed 6 inches of gravel for easy cleaning, its surprising how much the girls poop!
