Exciting news from Sarah in Illinois. The new additions that she’s been working for all season have arrived!
Last weekend was very busy for me, so I am going to let pictures so most of the work for this post.
I haven’t had much time to spend with them but I have already determined a couple personalities. I keep saying that I am not going to name them, but I am sure it will eventually happen.
This one is the boss. She is the leader and the noisiest. She is the first one to make noise as I walk up.
This one is shy. She is the last one to approach me, the last one to come out of the coop, the last one to try the new piece of food I give them.
This one is the tallest and always has her neck up high and reminds me of a lookout for organized crime.
I haven’t determined what personality this last one has.
I still have a lot to learn, but as I write this, I have kept them alive about 32 hours! So I consider that a win.
I have two outdoor cats and I have been very concerned how they would react to them. One really couldn’t care less about them. The other:
I guess time will tell.
This is so exciting, Sarah! Have you had any eggs yet? What kinds of chickens are they? I think I see a Plymouth Rock and a Rhode Island Red? Shy and Lookout look different from the breeds I’m familiar with. Good luck with kitty. Hopefully it’s just a case of curiosity.
