Moving Day

Buff Orpington and Black Australorp  Pullets

This past Sunday we moved the new chicks (pullets) over to the 'big chickens' coop. The resident chickens were NOT impressed. Neither were the geese. We kept everyone separate until it was bedtime for the 'old birds' which happens to be earlier than the younger chickens...doesn't that sound familiar?!

One of the Buff Orpington's checking out her new 'digs'

The 'Excotic' bird the hatchery threw in happens to be a cockrel

Some of the Black Australorp exploring the new place

Oooo Good stuff to eat!

Oh comes trouble!

Things went pretty well up to that point but then it was time to put the geese in for the night...they sleep in the coop too. The geese were NOT impressed with these intruders but once the lights went out everything settled down.

Percy was NOT impressed by his new room mates

Neither was Priscilla

 The pullets are feeling more at home and slowly starting to venture out to check out their new neighborhood. I think they're liking this new arrangement.
The geese are now residing in the barn and seem ok with that too.

Shep came to see what the commotion was all about

Looks like all is well on the farm is good.

What's happening around your place today?

I just want to say THANK YOU to MISHA at
From My Front Porch In The Mountains
I won her draw for tickets to see the Titanic Museum in Valley Forge Tennessee!
I'm so excited and so is my husband.
Looks like we'll be taking a trip to the mountains this October
I can't wait!

I hope you'll stop by Misha's if you aren't already a Follower and check out her wonderful
Blog in the mountains of Tennessee. Check out her beautiful Arabian horses and most especially her little sweetie little Miss Annie.
You'll Love love it.

Enjoy your day!

Too cute and too sweet! How do your cats get along with them? That is my worry since the outdoor cats love to bird watch!

And Maura....I hope your hubby has a good sense of direction or you have GPS, because it is PIGEON FORGE, Tn (like the bird!)

If you are going to Pennsylvania, then you will find the historic Valley Forge. HA!!!!

I think you may have been a tad bit excited when you wrote this! You are too cute!

xo, misha

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

LOL!! Misha I can't believe I wrote Valley Forge...geez...I really did look up Pigeon Forge on Google Maps so I'm pretty sure we won't end up in Pennsylvania hehehe. Thanks for straightening that out for me! FYI...thank goodness our cats were indoor cats when we got them so they've been put in their place by the rooster and the hens and so far have NOT caught a bird. From what I've seen from some of these pullets..they're not afraid of the cats and would probably go after them. as for the geese...the cats run when they see the geese coming LOL! Anyway thanks for the correction :)

Congrats on your win! I was so excited to read that you won on Misha's blog. I love the story of the big move! Your chickens truly are pretty. And your geese look very much like my Brown Chinese.

And yes, you were right about my "Haulin' Chicks" pics from today, Maura. It took me a vewwy vewwy loooong time. Li'l Peeps are not cooperative models, are they? They're either trying to make an escape or falling asleep (sigh). :) -Tammy
