I have tried to get the Rhode Island Reds to set. It's just NOT happening. Oh, they do 'sit'. Just for a day, perhaps, just to be malicious, a week, but to bring egg to chick, nope.
So, I decided to get some more chickens to "help". This has created some amusement, some shock and awe, amazement, and general notice by the neighbors...
A look of confusion.
What in the world ARE those big yellow things?
Even the rooster isn't exactly sure of what to do...
Introducing, my 5 new Golden Girls.
(Buff Orpintons.) Husband has taken to calling
these "Golden Girls", and the others "The Roadies".
I feel like I should be a television producer...
They are the epitome of "Mellow Yellow",
laid back, and hopefully we will see chicks somewhat soon...
And this is what happens when Buzz is on the post
realizing I am close...
This is the look of annoyance
when she can't get on my shoulder.
Can she jump?
Not when I scoot back a few feet...
Disappointed Buzz is disappointed.
(So I came back and scratched her chin.
Whereupon Husband let Rudee out, and I
had a green eyes competition for my affection.)
