We recently added a few more chickens to our hobby farm. My hub has always wanted a few barred rocks and he just decided to order a few one night on a whim. We had an extra chicken coop that my cousin didn't need so it was the perfect place for the new hens.
In addition to three barred rocks we also got two white rocks -- to mix it up a little bit. Right now, these girls are in their teenage years and just starting to feather out but you can already tell how beautiful they are going to be.
This little coop is so cute -- just needs a little paint and a few touch-ups. I believe the birds are enjoying their new digs as well as the warmer weather!
We still love our golden comets, they have really grown into their personalities! They are also serious egg-layers. Even when it was freezing cold this winter with snow on the ground, we could always count on eggs every single day.
