The New Chickens Have Moved OUT

You will recall that the publicist and the male person got New Hampshire Red chicks this year instead of Rhode Island Red chicks. Well, they have grown up enough to move out into the chicken tractor in my goat pen.

They are at that gangly teenage stage so they still look a bit funny.

It took them a few days to get used to having a new world to explore but now they come and go all the time.

In the morning the male person opens their door and they start coming out.

Some of them don't bother to use the ramp.
This chick just jumped!
Silly chicken!

They wander around the goat pen eating bugs and seeds and sometimes they STEAL MY GOAT GRAIN!
Can you imagine such a thing?!

This does not make me happy but when I try to maaaa to them about it they get this look in their eye

and it scares me.
Would you go up against that?
I didn't think so.
Not to mention that their beaks are SHARP!

When they are done for the day they go back in their tractor.

The end.

(ps - tomorrow I will tell you about the new exotic chick, the Polish crested)


  1. They don't look like they did when I saw them! Did they all survive?

  2. oh what fun! new kids on the block/blog!

  3. what a cute little chicken butt! but, yeah, that's an evil eye!

  4. That is a mean looking chicken eye! Butter Bean has the same problem with chickens in his pen too.Maybe you two can start a club,G.A.G.S.C, Goaties Against Grain Stealing Chickens!

  5. Our human locked up Naughty Rooster Boy, and he has that look in his eye all the time now! I bet that exotic chick is cute!

  6. That's a chicken? We thought they just appeared, purrfectly roasted, for us cats!

  7. We wouldn't mess with them! Uh uh, no way!

  8. Whoa! I didn't know chickens gave the stink eye! Chickens are tasty, but I don't think I would want to eat that one.

  9. It's no secret how Darla and I feel about chickens. Be glad there aren't any roosters about. They're the nasty ones!

    ps. (My Maa holds my grain dish so not goats or chickens or roosters or anybody can steal it! ~Darla)

  10. They sure are bigger then my chicks!

  11. You know how mean and moody teenagers can be.

  12. Yup those chickens look like they mean it. We sure wouldn't mess with them. But they are norty to eat your goat grain. That is just rude. Hope all of you have a super day.

  13. Oh my yes that is a mean look that chicken is giving you. I wouldn't take that one on either!


Maaaaaa away....
