his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

I Have Become the Crazy Chicken Lady

Unfortunately Chickens do not photograph very well.
I am not to worried about that as you all well know I am not known for my photography skills.
So, without further ado, meet the gals.

These are the Speckled Sussex. They are my favorite. Very sweet and very quiet.

We have a few Rhode Island Reds. A little noisier. A little bossier but, they lay beautiful large brown eggs like clockwork.

This little lady I got just for her looks. She is a Crested Polish. She is not the brightest tool in the shed but she has the niftiest little hairdo.

Here is a small sampling of the shades we are getting.
The cute little one was the First egg of one of the speckled's. Isn't it cute!

It sure has been fun. The kids LOVE hunting for eggs and chasing them around.
We just let these ladies free range in our yard all day. They have always laid there eggs in the little boxes we have made for them! The other amazing thing is that every evening as dusk begins to settle they scurry on into their coop and bed down for the night all by themselves. Pretty Nifty.
What an adventure.

  1. Wow! Jayson has been talking for three years about adding some laying hens to our back yard. I'll have to show him this!

  2. We have been talking about it too! But we also keep finding some dog leftovers in our yard (we don't have a dog) and though are yard is fully fenced we can't figure out how this keeps happening! I'm afraid our ladies would get attacked!
