on our recent visit to our daughter’s family on the Island
we were introduced to their chickens, incubated, hatched and now almost fully grown
daughter designed and built the chicken coop
with much advice on construction design and predator proofing from her father
they are different varieties, each has a name and responds to calls and hugs like any pets
always on the move, they are colourful, inquisitive, smart and friendly
they love their free ranging time under supervision by the granddaughters
watch out for hovering hawks, sneaky minks and hungry raccoons!
soon there will be eggs….
if interested, you might like to visit our daughter’s blog to learn more about their adventures in raising these delightful feathered creatures
