Our Birds

I’ve been meaning to take photos of our new flock for a while, but foot and back issues stood in my way.  A little back story- a neighbor’s dogs killed 42 of our birds 5 months ago.  2 hens survived because they were broody in an upper laying box.  Although it was horrible to see to lose these birds, I did enjoy picking out different breeds of chicks and ‘designing’ our new flock. We got Buff Orpingtons, Polish, Leghorn, Barred Plymouth Rock, Americauna, Faverolle, Brahma, and Guinea foul. Here are a few so you can see their cuteness 🙂

Jenna, Juan, and Junebug

It was cold outside and Junebug wanted nothing to do with this photo shoot, but we made it through!  Even my crazy ‘trumpet’ noise didn’t make Junebug look.  (Yes, I played trumpet in high school and was darn good at it.)  A German Shepherd captured her interest so the owner graciously stood by me so Junebug would look near the camera.  9x5a0663
