Chick-chick-chickeee


We can has chickens. Rescue chickens too! I've always wanted chooks and when I heard you could buy ex-battery chickens and save them from slaughter I decided to bite the bullet and chicken us up. In 24 hrs we've already gathered 3 eggs. Hooray for rescuing poor battery chickens and hooray for having enough room in our yard for a coop and hooray for our landlord saying we could do it and hooray for our girls.


Henrietta - she's boss chickeh

Ivy - ?
Kakashi - apparently she's a manga-chickeh






Sparkles - she laid an egg in the car on the way home!

Smudge is very interested in the chicken coop

Happy chickehs

A girl has to have red gumboots to tend to her chickehs

  7. Oh Pundelina, the chickehs are gorgeous!!! I love love love the photos and the very glam gumboots. A girl has to have the pretteh gumboots.

    I had no idea you could rescue ex-battery hens...what a fab idea (am wondering if you could post a link/info?). what kind of chickehs are these? I plan to get chickehs for the farm one day...absolutely wonderful about your landlord saying yes. :)

  9. I love the way you are doing it....awesome...I am also glad your landlord permitted you to do it.

    I love the name Kakashi. Shhh...its a secret but she belong to a Samurai about 800 years back. The Samurai was slain in a duel and the poor chicken has been looking for him ever since.

    And those boots? Awesome!

  10. I love it. And now I have chicken envy! Fresh eggs. And in your car, no less:) I've told my husband that one day when we move out into the country we'll have to raise chickens. I think he thinks I'm a nutter, but a girl can dream:)

  12. Chicken envy is RIGHT! What beautiful birds. I am planning to get chix in 2011, so please do post to let us know how it goes.

    What fun! I've heard they are so much entertainment on their own.

  13. I LOVE chickens. They are so cute and funny. I love how sparkles laid an egg in the car. Poor sparkles-- but it is still funny.

    Very cute set up. I am looking forward to some hens of my own one day...

  14. The chickens are beautiful, and your red boots go very well with their red plumage. We have seven chooks - Isa Browns - that look quite similar to yours.
