Pillow Fight!

I thought I'd lighten this post up.  After this past week, I need it!

I dub this post;  Pillow Fight!  It's exactly what it looks like in the chicken run.  White feathers everywhere!  This shot is actually under a set of roosts the Moose built the original Hooligans.  Up until the past couple of weeks, they barely used it.  Now all but Miss Corrie and Berta sleep here at night (they still sleep inside the actual coop).


A lot of preening has been going on lately, and Miss Berta is definitely in her molt stage.  No eggs and she has a couple of bald spots on her head and neck.  I also see some new fluff in others. I can tell because it's bright white, and she hasn't been bright white since she moved in at The Compound.

The Cotton Club is sure coming along!  Other than a couple of chicken, chickens they are all much more calm around us.  They are all healthier and happier.  They wait impatiently at the door when we arrive, just waiting to get out and run around.  They are so much fun. 
 
Here's a few other photos from Saturday;
 
Miss Dolly our new egg layer!
 
 
The three Hooligan's
 
Rose and Pennie, seem to be all legs at the moment.


Pig Pen, is really getting big.  So far he's a very calm rooster.

 
 
That's all for now.  Have a safe week!
