The Chickens

Page 3

Well we didn't think those little banty roosters had it in them since they are so much smaller than the road island red hens, however, we decided to let one of the hens lay on some eggs AND...! One little chick hatched. The chicks name is Peepers. Only time will tell if little Peepers is a hen or a rooster and what color it will turn out to be.
