As well as adopting a pig (Ophelia is coming home today. Pictures later!) we also took in five rescue chickens from the OSPCA. Here are four of them:
Julie in front, LeMay with the black speckles, and Carol is the big white one, and Debbie is the one hiding under the others. They are all named after shelter workers. :)
And Bonnie, who likes to be held!
After their brief quarantine, Bonnie was the first one to come out and integrate.
Here she is hanging with her new friend Becky, in our lovely redneck coop. Panelling, foil insulation, cardboard, a tarp... Martha Steward would not approve!
The new chickens are all a little thin, as they were found in a barn with no food, water or warmth. But they otherwise seem very healthy, so I am working on getting them fattened up a big.
Off to pick up Ophelia the pig.
