We had three hatches of eggs that have resulted in 24 chickens.  They are getting big, fast!  The older two hatches have got most of their feathers now - still a few downy spots here & there.  We're starting to be able to tell ladies from gents.

Joe retrofitted a section of the barn into an inside/outside chicken coop.  There's a smaller free-standing coop that we've been cycling groups of chickens into - for fresh grass & bugs.

The kids love tending the chickens - Levi always has one in hand.

a group of older chickens in the 'fresh grass' coop - these two ladies in the middle have ruffled feathers around their cheeks, a trait of Araucanas

these are over my shoulder shots - Indi riding in the back carrier - she gets excited!
