Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

To get to the Metler's, of course! So, remember Clucky? Well, a few months ago, she ran away. There are a lot of stray cats around here who enjoyed sitting in our back yard and taunting her. One afternoon I let her out to roam in the back yard and didn't catch her before the sun went down, so she had already jumped up into her favorite sleeping spot - the mulberry tree. Well, in the morning, she was gone. So either a cat got her (which quite frankly I think would be difficult cuz she was pretty big), or she ran away, or someone got hungry...sorry - that was not nice.
Anyway, we actually kinda miss having a chicken around - she was such a good pet. So, here we are again - but this time, one was not enough...allow me to introduce you:

This is Cinderella

This is Ariel (Haylie's personal favorite)

This is Snow White

This is Haylie after getting pooped on by Ariel. She didn't even cry - what a good sport!
So all three chicks are different breeds, and according to the lady at the feed store, Snow White will lay blue eggs. Cool, huh? They're so cute and so fun.
