Saturday encore ~ All grown up

This post is from October 2014. 
Makes me wonder what the new chickens I'm bringing home today will look like.

***

You: Hold on just a minute. Did you just say new chickens?
You #2: WTF? Is that all you're going to say?
You #3: When do we get to meet them?
You #4: What are their names?
Me: Patience is a virtue.

When I brought home Edith and Lady Mary last May, 
I was a little concerned that I would have trouble telling them apart. 



I needn't have been. They've become very distinguishable as they've matured.



Lady Mary at 12 weeks.



Lady Mary at 7 months. Her feathers are pure white, and her great big comb sticks straight up.



Edith at 12 weeks.



Edith at 7 months. Her feathers are flecked with tiny bits of black, 
and her comb over rivals Donald Trump's.

  1. Maybe two of their names could be Patience and Virtue.

  3. It's great that you posted about chickens today. I just heard about this chicken that tweets:

    Is it time for Lady Mary to get a twitter account?

  4. And neither of them are to be messed with, obviously. You have fierce chickens.

  6. Exciting! Hope their integration into the flock will go as peacefully as the previous ones.
