Just came back from the feed store with 4 new babies. These are the Cukoo Maran's, the chocolate egg layers that I've been waiting on all week to come in. John went with me and because there were two colors, a blackish and brownish, HE told me I couldn't just get three like I wanted that I had to get two of each color. So my chicken total is now at 14 and it stops there! When all 14 start laying, I'm gonna put a sign in my front yard "Fresh Eggs For Sale" cuz I'm giving them away left and right as it is now with just 4 laying! Make them earn their keep!
And as an update on the older ones. Anna has decided that when she gets out of that watermelon crate, she is running away and joining the high wire act with the circus. She's decided she likes sitting on the cord to the heat lamp! Anita has joined her sister in sitting on top of the feeders and waterers. Sluggy is being a slub and staying with her feets firmly planted on the ground!
