Paris and Vienna up to some trouble

Today, Paris and Vienna decided it would be fun to bother Shadow in her favorite sunny spot. They had seen the cat walking around outside their pen, but had never really met.
Naturally the chickens were pretty curious about this mysterious ball of fur.
Luckily Shadow is very patient and let them walk around her a few times.
I know this face well. Its called the "I was once a happy cat."

Hopefully, I will post pictures of other chickens in the new flock tomorrow.

It's been awhile.

I do apologize for my extended leave of absence, but much has happened since March and it gets harder and harder to get motivated to write a blog post. Well, enough of that. The chickens are doing very well, and we actually have eight new chickens. We named them after world cities, however there are a few strange exceptions. These are some pictures of Paris and Vienna, our Sicillian Buttercups.
It took me ten minutes to catch her after this picture. Not easy, I'm still covered in dirt.
Chickens are fascinated by polka dots. They are pretty cool :)
Poking around Mom's garden.
In March we purchased two Sicilian buttercups, two Rhode Island Reds, two Australorps, and two Americanas. I wanted to get Sicilian buttercups because they lay white eggs(all of our chickens lay blue, green or brown) and also for their plumage. Something I didn't foresee was how fast and flighty they are(hence trying to catch them...)
