The taller one in back is the Buff Silkie.
AND - loves to be held!
When I started this blog 2 years ago, it was all about what was going on at Two Dog Pond - mostly the chicken house we were working on. I had never had chickens before and with the help of my niece Kim, got 12 of the sweetest Red Star hens and one badass rooster named Cocky Rocky who ended up going free-range after attacking me one too many times when I was hanging up laundry.....
Easter Sunday of this year there was a terrible mass murder committed. We called in CSI Two Dog Pond but the crime was never solved. We think it was a mink. That's all I'm saying about that. It still freaks me out to think about it.
TODAY - I went and picked up some new chicks and they are Adorable!!
This time I got a variety - 3 Speckled Sussex, 3 Cuckoo Maran, 9 Aracauna (they lay green eggs). I was talked into also adopting a Buff Silkie and a Black Frizzle.
When they are adults, they will look like this:Top row Left to right - Speckled Sussex, Buff Silkie, Cuckoo Maran
Bottom row L to R - Aracauna (they can be any color from buff to lilac to red to brown), Black Frizzle, and another Speckled Sussex.
...I haven't made any crowns for them like I did last time... at least not yet.
