do they have large talons?

“Do the chickens have large talons?”
“Do they have what?”
“Large talons.”
“I don’t understand a word you just said.”
— Napoleon Dynamite (Paramount Pictures, 2004)

This is not going to become an organic-chicken-raising urban-farming blog, but here are a few more updates for our chicks’ devoted fans.

1) The fuzz is on the way out. This Rhode Island Red is Golda. She is displaying her fancy wings and (let’s be honest here) the cutest tail feathers of all time.

2) I can’t tell the Barred Rock chicks apart and we might give some of them away, so two names rotate between all four. This little lady might be Winifred or Simone. She is displaying her talons.

3) You can get another peek at all six in this video – they are still reasonably adorable and like to peck their beaks on the side of their box.

  1. I have had my 2 turkeys and 2 guinea chicks almost 3 weeks and they are growing so fast by this weekend I will need to split then up into 2 cages.
    Happy gardening
