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!
In order to have happy healthy chickens, it is important to read to them! On this warm Spring day, Babs enjoys her book about sounds that farm animals make!
Sometimes when your feathers get all dirty, you require a chicken spa day. This glorious event is hosted by the talented Sarah. She will scrub your feathers regardless of where they are located. She will praise your beauty and talent, all the while listening to your stories about our obnoxious younger sisters. She will even paint your nails if you are looking for something really special. Any chicken interested in a spa day should contact Sarah to schedule your appointment.
When you REALLY want to celebrate with Sarah, you make chicken cupcakes! Happy 12th birthday Sarah! Not only were they beautiful, they were delicious too!
