Our Little Garden Flock

If you would like some entertainment around your yard, get a few chickens!

Our flock is mixed.  This is our little red, bantam rooster.  He is the current patriarch.

I couldn't help but smile when I noticed a wren was fluffing her nest with one of his tail feathers!  At first I thought it was a black snack and was considering my defense options when, thankfully, I realized the wrens were not under attack, just decorating.

Our second rooster is a Cochin with black feathers all the way down his legs, like fancy boots.  He is sweet and gentle.

All the girls are crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

 As one of the oldest hens, Carolyn is our current matriarch, but she shares her duties nicely with Agatha and Dodi.

What's happening in your back yard?
