Beautiful Noise

September 23, 2010

I woke up this morning with a firm intent to take pictures of the girls and update the blog. It has been so long, and so much has happened, that I knew it would be a long entry. Little did I know.

Let me back up a few weeks.

As the girls grew, it was obvious, even though all the “number-of-hens-equals-X amount-of-space” formulas told us we had plenty of room for the four of them, a little more space was required. So, we opened up the area under the coop, giving them 16 sq. ft. of additional roaming room, and Mr. CV built a perch in the run, which they immediately loved.

Note, this pic was taken 8 weeks ago.

Much growing and developmental changes have gone on since then, with Joanie and Ginger developing their waddles and combs much faster than Hazel and Truffle, despite being the smaller of the birds. Their feathers have developed into a beautiful reddish brown, and they’ve caught up in size with Hazel. Miss Truffle is still quite a bit larger than the others.

So, onward to this morning’s happenings…!!
