I am now the proud owner of four beautiful Buff Orpingtons! I have two that are about 16 weeks and should start laying soon. The other two are about 6 weeks of age and wont start laying until the end of the summer. I have several names picked out but I need to study their personalities a little more before I settle on anything. I’ll let you know. Here are some pictures of the girls!
The dogs seem pretty curious. If I am not outside they leave them alone but if I walk out to the coop the dogs act like it is Christmas! Lily lay there for about 30 minutes just watching them. Hopefully they don’t decide to eat them!
I am also having a contest! I am looking for a name for my Hen House. I’d like to paint the name on the side. The winner will also get a chicken related prize! If you would like to enter the contest just leave a comment with your suggestion for a hen house name. Be sure to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win. The contest will end at 4:00 Central Time on May 14th.
