It's Official! We're Chicken Owners.

This afternoon Ethan and I drove out to Dunlap Hatchery in Caldwell where we picked up a trio of Rhode Island Red Pullets (baby hens).

They're in their brooder in the house for now but I'll certainly have to get on that chicken coop soon now.

Those are very pretty birds ~I can't wait to enjoy the eggs...

You need to post pics of your real birds. I want to see! Will you get a rooster too, like Deverall's had?

Rager said...

Please, for the sake of the neighbors, do not get a rooster.

Ah, something I've tried to convince Rager we need but somehow never can.

Have fun with them!

The city won't let me have a roo. And I don't really want one anyhow. I want eggs... not a noisemaker.
