292b barn raising

Oct 19 – The barn going up.   It really is a barn!  We bought barn paint to paint it – red of course.  The floored section is the size of the original kit.

292d nest

The chicks – hatched.  11 hatched.  One egg is still with mom, but I don’t hear anything inside peeping, so I think it just isn’t going to hatch.  The chicks are Ameraucana/Buff Orpington crosses.  They are all the gold of Buffs with a dark stripe on their heads, a little marking on the back and on wing edges.  They are going to be pretty chickens!  And just when I wanted more chickens (having lost too many recently).

Here’s a smile-maker for sure!
