We've doubled our donkey herd. And now on to the chickens.
Friend and chicken mentor, Debbie, is raising a dozen mixed breed chicks. Three have been earmarked mine. These cuties will be joining us in January. Ooh-la-la.
Here's a peek at their growth:
Only a few days old and cute enough to melt any heart
A wee bit bigger and stronger
And, November 11
Hey, what happened to October!
We tagged this cutie as one of my three; she's an Amberlink, a new breed to us. Two Amberlinks and one Australorp (black) will be joining our current crew of four. I'll have to have a talk with our girls to make sure they understand the agenda - no fighting. Of course I did that with Luigi and Gabs and a lot of good that did. There is still donkey posturing all the time, but all four will now eat together and they'll congregate in the barn without too much strife.
