brown and green and hens all over.

Eleanor, 8 years old, or 9? I have lost track.More mushrooms discovered Saturday while hunting for the bear (note hunting for the bear, not hunting the bear. There's a difference there).
They grow so fast...these are two twin girls, I swear some days they hatched from the same egg!Everyone all grown up, or nearly so. 3 roosters, 2 hens. I wish there was a magic hen wand one could wave over incubating chicks.
My favorite boys. Tutter2 and the very chocolate chick, Truffles.
Yummy Truffles. Think he's a keeper, Americana/Cochin cross, and the foundation for my imaginary planned new breed of chicken, which has no name and will probably fail, but we'll see.
This is likely his mom. Notice the resemblence? He looks more like her than his dad.
See, he looks just like her!
The nameless rooster currently in charge. No name...we all know what that means...
FO's coming soon. Imagine that!?

They are so adorable! What do you do with the roosters? That is the question that's kept us from getting another chicken, after Patti's unfortunate visit with the dogs next door.

These are some of the most beautiful chickens I have seen. I am enchanted by them and it looks quite rewarding. Your enthusiasm is catching. For some reason photographs of mushrooms are so appealing to me, and I love this one as well.
