Yes, we finally decided to get back into raising chickens. Here are our four new girls a few days after bought them. Not sure how many weeks they were, definitely not baby chicks, pre-teens maybe? This is only our second time having chickens, so I am by no means an expert. I still have to look up what breed they are, hope they're good layers!
Faster than a speeding chicken? They are super fast, and two of them jump straight up when startled. Right now they are in the downstairs bathtub with a heatlamp and the exhaust fan on. This picture is from two weeks ago, so now they are just about big enough to put outside, we're going to try it in a small pen today and see how they do.
So far no names, but when I end up with trippy pictures like this, perhaps be looking for some 1960's counterculture monikers like O'Leary, Lucy, Janis and Jerry.

And as chickens, they should be able to live up to those names well!!!
I love chicks when they are at this in-between stage; still cute and not really getting their full grown chicken look!
Maybe they are pre-teens!
