Cooler days are also starting to arrive. Molting has begun and I swear, some mornings when I open the coop it looks as though a chicken has exploded! Just the other day as I was scooping up freshly fallen feathers in my hands from the run and Fluffy, one of our new Easter Eggers, came over to me and stole a large feather right out of my hand. She was so proud of herself!
The little girls are now 12 weeks old and really starting to look like real chickens! The Buff Brahma bantams’ combs are beginning to turn a bit red, which makes me think that they will be the ones to lay before the other chickens that they grew up with.
