Today was the first day outside for this year’s chicks. With great excitement opened the chicken house door and… well nothing. I was ready with camera in hand (a rarity for me) but these were no divas.
I think about half of the girls ended up having a quick look outside. A little grass was eaten, a little dirt was scratched, but overall they didn’t seem too impressed.
I went looking for something else to photograph and came across these lovely ladies:
This is the speckliest Speckled Sussex we have ever owned. The photo looks out of focus, but I think it is just her feather pattern. Their bright red combs show they are in lay and sure enough – among today’s eggs was one green egg and one pinkish egg.
