October versus February. This little Austra White, named Marshmallow by the kiddos, is one of the most curious little birds we’ve had.
This was our third batch of chickens ever, and my first time buying chicks in the fall. They were shipped from @mypetchickenofficial on Sept 24th. A bit of an impulse purchase after a string of predator attacks during the late summer that cut our old flock in half. ☹️ I was a little worried about integrating the new birds during the winter when they’d be cooped up a lot, but we got lucky and the first half of the winter was pretty dry. After an introductory period separated by chicken wire in the coop, they were still able to work out the pecking order while free-ranging.
