CHOOKIES!

Blue Wyandotte bantam
Gold Pencilled Wyandotte bantam
Lavender Araucana, she will lay pale blue eggs
Oh yeah! Something I've been wanting for a LOOONNNNGG time - chickens! We built a nice big chicken coop AGES ago and I've been so busy I just haven't had time to fill it with chooks, until now - yippee!! Say hello to our three lovely ladies... we have two little bantams of the Wyandotte breed; a pretty blue and a gorgeous gold pencilled. And a funny-lookin chicken of the Lavender Araucana variety who will lay eggs that are the most beautiful pale blue colour. Yep - blue chook eggs yay! These girls won't start laying for another couple of months, but in the meantime I'm really enjoying getting to know them teehee! I think this may get addictive, I'm already planning an extension to the chook run so we can get more :)

awesome. it's such a good idea to get chickens. saves some money if you really love eggs. When I get a house I'll be getting one or two as well. Take some pictures of those blue eggs when they start laying them!

I've not heard the term chooks before..and I love it! Bee, you'd love it here..right next to us, there is a chook run with about 20 of 'em. Crowing and all each day as my little one and I cycle up the street. Oh yours are simply gorgeous! Elora will love seeing them and tending to the eggs growing up...how wonderful!! : ) Pics of the blue eggs to come when they lay them, right? : )

I tried chasing and picking up chickens at a petting farm recently for fun and wow, it was hard! I never was able to pick one up. LOL! Do you think you'll give them names?

Oh, I love them! We only have boring brown chickens but I'd love to get some different ones next time. I like sitting and watching them. :D
