Wednesday Chicken Pictures

I just love the bunches and bunches of these Black-eyed
Susans. They do make me so happy, I don't think
I could ever have enough.

This is part of my flock. I let them out this morning
so they could have a little me time. It was cooler and
I wanted them to just wander around. I did my flower
beds and filled them with mulch so they look real
pretty and my porch is really clean and nice.
I just can't let them have free range all over now.
So they are stuck in the pen outside of the coop,
and they aren't happy about it. But, my husband is
and he does out rank the hens. :) I hope he reads this
post so he can see it in writing.

I had to show you a picture of my prettiest hen,
I know Dog Trot Farm got two new little chicks like
her so this is what they will grow up to be. She is so
gentle and such a sweetie. I don't think there is a single
mean bone in her very pretty body. Her feathers are
so soft, when I touch her her feathers feel like down.
I think one of my Cuckoo Marans is laying eggs,
I got a tiny very dark brown egg the other day.
I am looking forward to seeing what color this hen
eggs will be.
Hope you have a lovely Wednesday!

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!

(Psalm. 107:6)
