We got chickens!


We recently acquired a mama chicken and her three babies from a family who needed to move.

They ran around like crazy and hid while I tried to take their pictures, so here is a picture of the mama and one baby. (But you can see a wee beak belonging to another baby on the far right if you squint.)

I think they’re Leghorns, a very good egg-laying breed.

I’ve named the mama Henrietta, after my grandmother. We believe she would have been pleased. 

The babies look too much alike to be named yet, so I’ll update when they’re older.
