that's what those cute little fluffy chickens are called. silkies. nope they arent poodles. they are really nice little birds. and the one little white bird that has the curled up, wild feathers is called a frizzle...she is a frizzle cochin. only 1 in 4 chickens with the frizzle feathered gene actually frizzles. we bought these & the lady sold me her last frizzle. we were estatic.
these little guys are our 2 polish chickens that we incubated ourselves. out of 32 eggs we only had 2 hatch. it was the worst hatch i have ever had. but the chickens are very cute. the little brown polish is actually frizzled so i am happy with these 2 little guys! i mentioned to Clay this morning after putting the chickens in their new coop that now that he knew how to build one i would need another one depending on what hatches out of the 25 eggs i have incubating now (12 being polish, 12 being leg horns, 1 being our own barnyard mix). if enough of the polish hatch they will need to be kept separated also & since we already have a chicken tractor of silkies, we will need another one for the polish!
Anyway, Clay has worked diligently on the little tractor to my specifications & i appreciate his hard work. Rachel is thrilled as well considering these are her chickens. They should live long & happily in their new little coop.
