The Mayhew-Bergman chickens are thriving. Here's some footage of them in tonight's summer storm. (So yes, that's wind rushing over the mic, not me heavy breathing double rainbow style.)
The silkies have grown a lot in the last two weeks. They seem a lot less fragile. The barred rocks (Sudio and Jezebel) are very personable - inquisitive and vocal. I love their clucking and the way they seem to ask questions - mostly like - so what did you bring me this time, human?
