The Chickens

The Chickens!

This is my first blog post, and I am here to tell you about my chickens! We have five chickens, and they are all wonders and super nice and friendly. Well, except Rocky, who nice once you catch her, but is very hard to catch!

Tulip and Petunia!

Tulip and Petunia 

Tulip and Petunia are both Buff Orpingtons.  They are two years old, and were my first chickens. I raised them from chicks.  They lay an average of 6 - 8 eggs a week. Tulip is very tame and snuggly. Petunia does not like being held as much as Tulip, but she likes being stroked. 



Rocky is a Speckled Sussex. She is named after, that's right, Rocky Balboa, from the movies. Rocky is around six to eight months old. We got her in February.  Rocky is very hard to hold, and is also very fast. I have given up on taming her.  We are not sure if she lays, or how much she lays just yet. 



Bluebell is a Silkie. Her blue earlobes are prominent, so that is why we named her Bluebell. She is relatively tame and easy to catch. Bluebell lays quite a bit, and watch out for an up and coming blog post about her!



Irving is also a Silkie. She is completely tame and super sweet! Irving is named after Irving Berlin. Her plumage is the color of a burnt marshmallow, and she is only the size of a baseball. We got her in February as well. Irving doesn't lay yet!
