silver laced wyandotte, barred rock, ameraucanaThe long-awaited (and maybe slightly feared) day is here: our chicks have arrived!  Did I say chicks?  I meant: Assistant Gardeners.

We have 4 Barred Rocks, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, and 2 Ameraucanas.

I can’t believe how much they already behave like, well, chickens–drinking, pecking, cheeping, napping, pooping, attempting to fly, and falling on their heads.

There are already personalities.  At one point all of them fell asleep except the darker Silver Laced, who promptly started cheeping at the top of her lungs and woke the rest of them all up.  The big Ameraucana sleeps on her feet.   The Barred Rocks seem more adventurous and (slightly) more intelligent.

Can’t wait till the kids come home!
