Bingo !

I can't believe it has been a week since I have made a post. Things around Skunky Acre have been busy and we have all but 8 of our chickens in now.

The Wyandottes arrived the other day. They are so cute and sweet, not to mention tiny. Here is a picture of one of the little guys. They look just like the picture in the catalog so hopefully we got what we ordered this time. The giant feet in the picture are the mystery chickens we received when we ordered Dark Cornish chickens. With a little help from the feed store we identified them as Black Broilers and are now researching to see exactly what that means.

This little fellow is our newest mystery. He is definitely not a Black Broiler, but what is he. At first we thought him to be just a runt, then he sprouted that lovely mohawk down the middle of his head. Once again the people at the feed store came to the rescue and helped us identify what we think he could possibly be. We are leaning toward a Crevecour, but are uncertain at this time. It is just so hard to tell until they feather out. If it is a Crevecour we will be lucky people indeed. They are rare and really pretty.
