To say that Dad loves his new chickens is an understatement. They now have free range of the backyard before going in to roost and lay eggs at night. Dad and I like to dig up worms to feed them as special treats. They will even come running when he calls!
Buttercup, get off the pitchfork!
Buttercup is a squirmy little booger, but she's Dad's favorite because he thinks she's smarter than the others. I personally like one of the twins (we can't tell Pansy and Poppy apart) since she like to be held and petted. Petunia just kinda does her own thing, but I think she's the largest of the four. A robin must have heard the word that this is a bird-friendly house so she decided to lay her eggs on the back porch light fixture!
