We've got a bunch of new rhode island reds living here now. There are five of them. Mom and grandpa got them from a store. They came home and told grandma that her grocery store eggs had hatched on the way home. She didn't believe them. They were tiny little ladies on that first day. They have been here for at least a few months now and are growing up. They have almost lost all of their down and are now beautiful red feathered ladies. Mom says they will at least double in size before being full grown.
They are living on the screened in porch until the chicken coop is finished. They have learned where the door to the outside world is and they love to run out of it and find little pieces of plastic to tote around the yard. The humans try and keep a good eye on them, but they almost always find a way to get into trouble everyday. Sometimes they are getting stalked by a cat or one day one of them wandered off and got lost. Luckily mom found her the next day hiding under the car port. At night they roost on a shoe rack. They have to stay locked up on the porch at night because we have lots of foxes around and they love to eat chickens.

We had some of those when I was a puppy, mommy got ours from a store and brought them home and they slept in a box in our house until they were big enough to go leave in a pen outside. Sometimes mommy would let them out of theyre pen and the would follow mommy around the yard she called them her 6 red girls. Sadly when we moved mommy had to rehome them cause we didnt had anywhere to keep them here. Mommy misses them.
