The NPR correspondents move outside

Today, Nina, Sylvia and Soraya moved outside. It is a little cold tonight but I had to move Gloria, Buckleberry, Welsummer and Betty White out to the stage two home in the garage. They were really loud this morning and I was afraid they'd wake up my daughter. Stage one housing clearly got crowded fast.

Still in stage one: Stevie Nicks, Emmy Lou Harris, Fettucini Alfredo and Dandelion. I first moved Emmy Lou out and Stevie Nicks got really upset, peeping more loudly than the big crowd had when I was afraid they'd wake up my daughter. Chick management. Not easy!


A Wyandotte.

Spring chickens, 2011

Includes Betty White (pictured), Stevie Nicks and Emmy Lou Harris, Fettucini Alfredo and Dandelion, Buckleberry and Welsummer and Gloria.

Betty White

A Light Brahma, another new breed for us. She's a busybody but she is beautiful.

Stevie Nicks

A beautiful Salmon Favorelle.

Buckleberry and Welsummer

Two Welsummers, also a new breed for us. The hatchery had shipped an extra 50 hens to Houle's Farm store, so I took one more.

Emmy Lou Harris

A sweet partridge rock.

Fettucini Alfredo

Our other silkie. She may turn out to be a rooster.


Our first silkie chick. She is so very sweet.
