These girls rule

We took a morning trip to the Everett Coop to pick up the newly arrived chickens.  That was a bit stressful as we stood there and talked with Josh about which chickens would be the best. I didn’t have my notebook with and my head was swimming with how many eggs they produce, what color the eggs are, how aggressive the chickens were, etc, etc, etc. 

I could tell I was a rookie chicken man this morning.
  

So we got Five Ameraucana (from hence forth these will be known as Americano), three Barred Rock which grow into very nice black and white striped adults and Two Rhode Island Reds which Christy has fallen in love with already.  They were shipped in from some far off land in the morning so they were very undertandable tired.  It took me a bit to figure the perfect height and location of the lights and after their nap they all seem very happy.

They loved to charge up to the camera and check it out.

    What little cuties! My grandpa used to keep Rhose Island Red Roosters and sexlink hens. I would love to have some one day! Not many people have that as a lifetime goal, but it made him smile on his death bed when I told him I was going to get a big ol’ rooster and name it PawPaw after him. :D
