The Chickens Have Arrived....

These are the Bennets.  If you've read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, you know their names.  The red one is Mrs. Bennet; the four white Leghorns are Jane, Lizzy, Mary, and Kitty; the black and white is Lydia--the troublemaker!  She escaped when Julie was trying to unload them into the coop, and Julie and Randy, her husband, had to retrieve her from some brush in the ditch!  In the book, Lydia runs away with Mr. Wickham.  Ironic that the first thing she did when she got here is run away!

I'll post more pics--I've taken so many already.  The girls are settling in.  This will be a great adventure for all of us!

Make sure you give them some laying pellets to make their egg shells strong:) Looking Good!
