will you give these girls a welcome?

2 hens today joined our family Nutmeg and Clementine!!!

Nutmeg is a Rhode Island Red and seems to have made herself at home already. Clementine is an Ameraucana, and a bit more shy. We hope to be collecting eggs from them, eventually. As for now, they are sweet little pets.

They are actually quite stunning, your hens! Yes, what a neat experience for your family. I love your leaf cookies too, btw. Thanks so much for the icing tip. Carrot juice and confectioners sugar? Yum! Peace to you, Martha!

Oh, dear! This is the cutest thing ever. We had chickens growing up - miss that. :)

Yeah, those chickens are cool! I bet the girls are enjoying them too!
