Next Generation

The White Mob grown up (at least partially grown), and 2 of the 6 Rhode Island Red chicks I purchased from a neighbor. These Rhodies are as friendly and calm as the whites are standoffish and roamers. It's a fun combination. I usually see a group of the white boys under the trees at the far edge of the "bird area." They mock fight, then one decides to make a run for the sheep shelter. The others flap their wings, assess the danger, then run after the first. Once to the area of relative safety, they strut and scratch and peck.

Beautiful. I love this posting! Hens are so wonderful to have. Standoffish or not, they are just wonderful creatures!
