Meet the Cluckers

I am one proud chicken farmer!  I'm happy to report that our girls have grown into full size chickens (though their feathering hasn't matured completely). We have also said goodbye to our rooster (but I'm saving that for another blog post). They've graduated to living in an outdoor chicken coop that Jeff built with his own hands with some help from his Dad (also gearing up for that blog post too). Backyard life has gotten interesting and I'm long overdue for an update.  So, sit back and meet the cluckers, mugshot style.
She's our most tame and easiest to catch.

Our mischievous one.  She can be found trying to sneak into neighbors yards.

She's the one we saved in her shell.  She misses her brother.
She is Sheila's sister and can be distinguished by her red face.

We named him before we realized she was a HE.  He was the most beautiful of all the birds and we were sad to see him go.  He was a very tame rooster!

More posts coming soon!
