Sarah and Aimee competed at the Western Idaho Fair for the very first time. They were AMAZING! They each won ribbons for various competitions they participated in. We were all so proud of how hard they worked to compete this year.

Introducing our growing chicks; Floofie, the White Crested Black Polish, Augusta the Silver Laced Polish, Cass the black Silkie and Sallie the bantam white Cochin, who was supposed to be a Frizzle. The straight run chicks are all looking like hens!
This year we are looking for fancy, show chickens. Sarah and Aimee joined 4-H for the first time and are excited to learn how to show off their friends at the Western Idaho Fair! For the first time, we are looking for pretty birds, not great egg layers. All four of our chicks are straight run, meaning that we don’t know their gender. We have a black Silkie, a white Frizzle (we hope) and two Crested Polish chicks. They already love running around on the grass in the sun.
On March 18, 2015 we adopted freshly hatched Crested Polish chicks! Aimee’s (on the left) chicken is Floofie and Sarah’s is Augusta. Sarah is training her chick to come to her when she call her name, and her chick seems to be learning already. We are not sure what variety they are, or whether they or hens or roosters. It is going to be fun watching them grow. Stay posted to find out if they crow!
