On her second night, she refused to sleep in the cage and wound up being put in a box where she seemed more comfortable and went right to sleep, finally.=)

Think he’s a rooster? That’s my guess.

Say hi to Fudge! Fudge was extremely shy when she first arrived and is overcoming her shyness really quick.

Hazel (hen) and Basil (rooster) 11-21-12, Solo is happy at the farm. Unlike the other chicks that slept in a cage until ready to perch on trees, these 2 went from sleeping in a cage, to a box and now perching on wood that holds up the clothes line. Seems they don’t want to sleep in a tree yet.

These Red Star hens were flown in about 2 years ago from Hawai’i when they were chickies in a crate full of chickies to provide lots of fresh eggs at the family farm.

We brought Henney and Henley home for the chicken tractor in our backyard garden and for fresh eggs.
