We went out on Friday and let Corbin and Makelle each pick out their own breed. Makelle got an ameraucana because she is hoping for cute colorful eggs. Corbin got a white silkie, because he thought they looked ridiculous. And we picked out a black australorp and buff orpington to be for Seth and the new baby because they are suppose to be good layers, cold hardy and good with kids.
We aren't the most creative bunch so call them Easter Egger, Silkie, Stringer and Buffy.
Corbin likes to pretend they are parrots and he is a pirate. Makelle likes to flap their wings for them and pretend they are flying around the room.
So far we are having a lot of fun with our new little chicks and hoping for lots of yummy omelets this fall.
