|The entire first day they were under house arrest to make sure they got to know their new home.|
I wrote to Yellow Brick Road Farm explaining the troubles I was having getting a hold of laying hens, and would they be willing to sell me a few so I could get started this spring and not have to wait until summer.
Thursday morning I got an email back from Jennifer saying she'd be happy to help. Thursday night our first flock were tucked safely in their new coop and I called to cancel the June order.
- The rooster is a barnyard mix we named Romeo Rex the First. He was second fiddle at his old place and now he's got his own little flock of ladies.
- The striped black and white hen is a BarredRock we named Jennifer after the lady who sold them.
- The black hen is a Black SexLink we named Issabella.
- The brown/red hen is a Red SexLink we named Henrietta.
- The white hen is a DeKaub we named Kelly because Hugslut once told me she wanted a "Kelogs looking chicken" and we know she's not a leghorn but white plus red comb is close enough.
