This is little Louise. When they arrived, Louise was the very quiet, timid one. Unfortunately we lost one the day they got here- little June was in pretty bad shape when they arrived. She was all yellow and I think had a birth defect-little Louise stayed right by here side and was pretty sad when June died. She peeped and peeped until I put her in my hand with June and just wanted to cuddle next to her. It took a day or so for her to cheer up.
This is my little girl Thelma. When I first put her in the brooder she was kicking all of the pine shavings into the brooder, stepped all over Louise and just generally caused a bunch of trouble! She was a Thelma for sure!
Over the past couple of days though, their personalities have switched completely. Louise is a rowdy one! She makes the most noise and loves to explore.
Sweet little Thelma loves to be held. She curls up in my hand and wants to stay right there! She doesn't have as pretty coloring as Louise but she is so darn sweet! Not that I could pick a favorite but if I did...
Pretty soon our girls will need a new home. It'll be 4-5 months before they're laying any eggs and in the Spring we are going to get two more chicks so we've got a little time to get their hen house figured out. I can't wait to have a pretty little coop in the backyard!
