Buckeye Update- 12 weeks

The girls are growing up! Here's a Buckeye pullet, about 12 weeks old, out for an afternoon stroll in the leaves..

And here's the wide angle view of the gals out of their pen and strolling the grounds and nibbling on everything...luckily it's late enough in the season that the nibbling doesn't matter... The Buckeyes are comparable in size to the Black Australorps, which is pretty good.

And finally for this quick post today, a shot of one of the random hardware-store roosters I accidentally bought. I don't know what kind he is, but he is beautiful, if shy. Well there's a superquick poultry update before I dash off to work!

They are beauties! I can almost hear them calling and clucking to one another. What a peaceful sound...
