Our Girls

For Easter I got 3 Americauna hens. They aren't laying eggs yet... probably around the end of June they will start laying. I have always wanted to have a farm and have chickens and goats. I am so happy that we are starting our own little homestead.

This is their favorite spot...curled up together under the Weigela bushes. We let them roam free on our little 2 acres, but they prefer to stay under here.

...or walking on people

A few days ago we rescued this giant hen. She was living on an abandoned farm. She is very wild, not used to socializing at all. We named her Toothless, after the dragon from the movie, "How To Train Your Dragon". She gets along great with all our younger girls. Plus, she is already laying eggs.
