As promised, here are a couple of pictures of our chickens. I thought I had more, but these are the best ones. I tried to attach a video, but haven't figured that out yet.
This handsome looking fellow is Rudy, our rooster. Perhaps it will change, but he's a gentle guy, even letting me pet him. I so enjoy hearing him "cock-a-doodle-do" in the mornings and occasionally throughout the day when he feels the mood. I was worried about our neighbors, but they listen out for him. That's comforting.
These are a few of our hens. The lighter ones are Buff Orpingtons while the rest are Rhode Island Reds. I love to hear how they coo when they're calm.
