Saturday I went to Bonnie and Clyde Trade Days and bought six four month old pullets. I gave my sister three (she likes to raise chickens, too) for her birthday and I kept three. These are mine. Two are Ameraucanas and one Rhode Island Red.
When they are next to the big chickens you can really tell how small they really are. They have done really good. I kept them in the cage Saturday afternoon and then I put them in the hen house with the other chickens. Sunday morning when I opened the hen house they stayed in. So, I put them in the pen and put a little chicken wire up to keep them in. Later that morning I came back and the chicken wire was down but they were still in the pen. They came out into the back yard for a little bit, but when everyone one else started going into the hen house that evening so did they. They seemed to know they had to go in last.
