Here's Caleb shaking their food tray to get them to come over.
Whenever we're outside, they run over to us and just follow us around the yard.
Here is the chicken coop and roost Nick made for them. That little hatch is so we can reach in and collect the eggs. They haven't started laying yet, but probably will here in the next few weeks. We read somewhere that when the thing on the top of their head and beak turns bright red, that means they're ready.
I have to say that we favor the darker one (Bernadette). The lighter one (Penny) is a little skittish.
In this picture, Caleb is saying, "Mere girls, mere," which means "Come here girls, come here."
Thankfully, the girls are quiet and do really well in the cold temperatures (both things Nick researched when he was making his decision). Next thing you know, we'll have a cow in the backyard! haha. Actually, there are cows across the street, so we can still hear and smell them which is a close as it's gonna get for awhile. Someday maybe we'll have a small farm to call our own. I do love seeing my boys happy.
