If you look closely, you can see the feathers starting to grow on Flora's feet. Fancy!

Chickens are getting bigger
Here are a few recent pictures of the older chickens. They are bigger now than our bantys were full-grown. It's hard to believe that they will get even BIGGER. No complaints, though - bigger chickens = bigger eggs! And yes, they have names. We decided to go to Disney for inspiration and named them as follows: Flora (white chicken), Fauna (speckled chicken), and Merryweather (whichever Araucana - blue egg layer - we keep). For now, Claire has named the other Araucana "Aurora." ('Cause they all have to have names, you know...)
