Here are all the ladies. No eggs yet. We are hoping to see a few "first" eggs in September. I am so eggcited (sorry, I had to) to see the first ones!
This is what the ladies look like when they get ready for the night. They peck their way on this roosting pole to get the perfect spot. Most of the time "Craylola" (the second chicken from the right) pecks at all the chickens to "prove" she is the leader. Amazing when she was the one that almost didn't make it as a chick. Poor Nugget in the front here gets the most of the pecking. However, I have noticed the girls settling in just fine with Nugget lately. She is still at the bottom of things, but I think she is more accepted. I have learned that chickens are just crazy! And I am crazy about them!!!
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
I say to myself, "The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in Him!"
