All Grown Up

The Girls, as you can see, are all grown up. They're now just over 3 months old, hatched on the first day of summer. No eggs yet; they should start producing within a month or two...everyone I ask who knows about chickens has a different idea of when they should start to lay. Some say four months, some five, others tell me I won't see an egg till Christmas. We shall see.
All 26 chicks survived, we kept half, and a friend from work added 13 to her existing flock.

They're quite tame, and highly entertaining. Elizabeth, the one eyed chicken, stayed with us.
