Wait for us, we're coming too!
These two young Aracauna chickens have been entertaining lately.  They were the ugliest chicks!  Its not a breed I'm all that fond of, but had gotten four of them to put under a broody hen.  A varmint got the hen and two of the siblings, these two survived though traumatized - and even more so after the scary human (me) caught them up and put them in secure quarters!  They've gradually become quite tame and follow me everywhere during the day.  They like to hang out with Christy, the farm cat.

I think I'll call them "Opal" and "Ruby".  Or "Peanut Butter" and "Crackers"....

Oh my goodness,Cary, now there's sight you don't see every day! Your Christy must be a very special cat :) I like the sound of Peanut Butter and Crackers, and I'm glad they've found a surrogate family in you and your kitty. xoxo
