We have chickens!!

Well the chickens are here! We went to Georgetown Farm Supply and bought ten of them. There are 4 Ameracuanas, 3 Golden Comets and 3 Leghorns. We should have an assortment of colored eggs. The Ameracuanas lay green and blue eggs, the leghorns lay browns and the comets will lay white eggs.
Right now the chicks are on a starter feed that has a small amount of antibiotics in it. We will slowly ween them onto scraps, bugs, worms and weeds in the garden. The coop has been painted and needs some finishing work while the chicks still live inside.
I’ll try to post more pictures as they grow. These hens are really neat!
