The ladies...

The ladies..., originally uploaded by HA! Designs - Artbyheather.

have grown! They're about 3 months old now...teenagers in chicken years! They're making those fabulous chicken sounds...talking to me when I bring them weeds...fill their waterer...throw them some scratch. Their feathers are beautiful...and plentiful! I really had no idea how many feathers they shed. Their pen is littered with them.
Now I wait patiently for eggs...I'm thinking they'll start laying by Halloween. I shall make a celebratory omelet when they do! Until then, I'll enjoy them for the funny species they are...seemingly angry, yet playfully friendly and unbelievably dumb. I never knew they'd be so much fun!
