Chickens are getting bigger

Here are a few recent pictures of the older chickens.  They are bigger now than our bantys were full-grown.  It's hard to believe that they will get even BIGGER.  No complaints, though - bigger chickens = bigger eggs!  And yes, they have names.  We decided to go to Disney for inspiration and named them as follows: Flora (white chicken), Fauna (speckled chicken), and Merryweather (whichever Araucana - blue egg layer - we keep).  For now, Claire has named the other Araucana "Aurora."  ('Cause they all have to have names, you know...)

If you look closely,  you can see the feathers starting to grow on Flora's feet.  Fancy!
