new chickens at the ranch

About couple months ago a bear got into the chicken coop and slaughtered 2/3 of my chickens and the duck.  Today we are pleased to announce 15 new chickens who just started laying eggs, thanks my good friend Julie for locating them.  So here are the gals.  My kids do all the chores for these birds, so they are no trouble :).  All I have to do is fertilize the fruit trees once in a while with the manure and figure out a million different ways to make eggs.

Clay, he takes care of the chickens everyday, after being told to do it.  Thanks Clay. (Yes, he is very ornery.)  He does a really good job with his flock.  He is even a cut throat eggs salesman, nothing gets by him.  His older sis is always looking on to make sure he does a good job.  Hope he doesn't grow up henpecked!
