pics I promised..

Here are some of the pictures I promised earlier this week.
This is the girls hanging out in the tree last summer...
 On their way up to the top of the tree..
 Henny Penny...(she's a bantam black-tailed buff japanese), she's a beauty..
Her used-to-be significant other...(we got rid of him over the winter, he was kinda mean, but he sure is pretty!!).  To us, he is the epitome of a rooster...
 Another of them in the was so cool to see them up there!!
We have 2 of these girls, she's a buff orpington..a regular sized chicken, not a bantam like some of the others (p.s. for anyone who doesn't know, a bantam is like a mini chicken..some of the standards end up being like 8 pounds, but these ones are only about 2, so significantly different).
My absolute favorite chicken...berdie, she's all fluff and has a wonderful personality!!  She's a birchen cochin bantam, we had some roosters that were the same kind as her and they were pretty calm and had good personalities too..but we just didn't want any roosters any more over the winter and found homes for them.  One of them we named Batman...It was the perfect name for him :)
Here's Batman...(insert batman theme song here).
 We have 2 of these, silver laced wyandottes.
Haha!  this is a pic of some light brahmas we used to have, this is one of my favorite pics of it looking at me, kinda scary, huh?  They were pretty nice girls though, at least to me, they didn't like berdie at all..
AND.....someone's birthday was this last week and we went to the store and got 16 new little chicks...I didn't plan on getting any more chicks for a few years, but we figured, what the heck!?  Once we get their brooder set up more permanently, I'll take some pictures and post them...many of the kinds we're not sure of, but it'll be kind of exciting to see how they grow up and to see what kinds they are!  YAAAY!  Plus, we figured that after the hubby gets done with school in a couple of years we will probably end up living in little apartments for the next 5 years or so, then we can have our little farm with all the critters we want!

Well, bed time.
