Chickens: A new beginning

    Above is baby “Mamie” perching on my arm. Mamie was born tame, she had to be lifted off when put back in the dinorama…She was always happy on my arm and didn’t want to leave. one of my two favourite chickens and the sweetest bird.

    I’ve missed having chickens and am excited to be having them again.

    We’ve been putting it off until we were “ready”, but as often happens with babies, we found ourselves making ready because they had arrived and were available. A friend posted today about some bonus chicks that she found with a lost broody hen. So, we’re taking them!

    It’s going to be chaotic for a couple of weeks, because we are preparing for a deck refurbishment beginning day after tomorrow so the house is going to be a bit nutty…but BABIES!

    While we’re at it, here is a photo of Biggie, the other favourite. 🙂
