Do you have any eggs yet? That’s the question I get asked at least once or twice a week. No not yet. Our girls are still too young. Maybe by fall. Our girls are growing into their own little personalities though. With Izzy, our Buff Orpington, definitely being one of the sweetest. Just yesterday she started following me around the yard and when I called her to the gate she came flitting over to me. The Dominiques, Milly and Tilly are tame and like to be held when you go to them. Then you have the Crazies… The Ameraucanas, Cleo and Isis, they like to be the leaders of the group and at the same time the loners. They are not as social towards us as the others but by no means are they mean. They still allow us to hold them…if we can catch them! We got the crazies for their beautiful blue and green tinted eggs though. We still have three baby chicks in our house though. We are in the process of getting the older ones used to their presence in the yard so they don’t get picked on to terribly. Although, I think a little is to be expected.
If you are ever in the neighborhood stop by and visit and us. You better plan to stay a bit though. The girls will lull you into a calm submission with their little crackles and chirpy sounds.
