Ladies and Gentlemen, Chickadee Homestead is now the home to four pullets! I know I haven’t posted the final phase of the chicken coop yet, and I normally don’t post twice in one day, but I wanted to share the exciting news!
Yesterday evening my brother helped me pick up these ladies from a local chicken breeder. I chose two Black Australorps and two Silver Laced Wyandottes. These weren’t my first choice of breeds (sorry, girls!), but they were what were available locally and they don’t need a brooder – my two biggest requirements. They are around 7 weeks old, so with any luck we’ll start getting some eggs in about 2-3 months!
As you can see from the photo, they are pretty nervous around us. So if any of you chicken pros out there have some advice on helping them acclimate, send it my way please!
(I’ll post the final phase of building the coop tomorrow)
